CLEOME AND LARKSPUR
oil on canvas board
9" x 12"
I was dimly aware of all these things for some time, but it was only after suffering through this painting that simply would not move along that I vowed to act on this awareness. Nice to know that I am not too old to learn something, even if I am a very slow learner.
I like one of the nicknames for this flower, Grandfather's whiskers. It could as easily be called Grandmother's whiskers I might add. The many, many seed pods carried on its long "hairs" makes it a constant uninvited guest in all parts of the garden.
