Marsh Marigolds

6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

It looks like a rainy day so I can get back to painting and let all my transplants settle into the garden.  Still plenty to do.  The spring is such a beautiful time to paint but the garden must be dealt with now or the whole summer is spent regretting.  I pulled plenty of these beauties out of my flower beds this year.  They have a brief moment and then they take over.  One great thing about a lovely "weed", you know it will be back again no matter how many you pull.  I wish that were true of the not so lovely ones!  You can find this painting at Graver's Lane Gallery now.
