When a Flower

The last couple summers I  have geometrically progressed in the amount of time I spend in the garden. Here are a couple photos i saw while going through my camera.  These 2 quick shots  reminded me of the influence daily life has on my  painting.

Dahlias need to be pulled from the ground prior to frost, then wrapped up and watered a bit during the winter.  Their over night tranformation from bud to full blooming flower is enough for even this late nighter to get up early .first dahlia blog_0671 How a flower becomes a fruit blog 20x20in acrylic on canvasblog ready flowerDSC_0679
