After being inundated with wild flowers at every turn this past summer, all I could do was paint them. Down on my belly and eye-to-eye with each group, I tried to capture the wealth in every square foot. Flowers and plants were crowded together, forcing relationships of color, shape and space. Small chunks of landscape begged for attention.I began each with an under-painting in what seemed to be the opposite color of each subject. I soon knew that this color was the true message of each painting.
