New Painting: Purple and White Pansy I

Purple and White Pansy I
11 x 14


Pansies continue to bloom here in southern Georgia.  They do quite well in the fall, winter and early spring.  But soon the subtropical heat will be too much for them.

I think about flowers and flora a lot.  I'm endlessly fascinated by cultivated flowers and even weeds. What I really love is the effect of sunlight on flora.  And I want to capture those fleeting effects because they do not last.

Today, I took photos of my pansies and though the light did not provide great contrast, I managed a beautiful painting after all.
