I've been excited to post this all day. This painting looked good from the beginning. I really had to just be sure I didn't mess it up. This clematis is growing on my front fence. One morning as I got the newspaper, I noticed the sun coming through the flowers making that deep grape juice color, so I ran and got my camera. I took a few pictures and this one is really the only one that turned out. The next day, a giant wind storm blew through and all of the blossoms were gone. Clematis flowers remind me of growing up because we had one crawling up some chain-link in our backyard.
I'm loving the flower series and have gotten a lot of great feedback. It's also been rewarding to work on a bigger scale. This piece will receive a Vintage Frame and will be fabulous.
