Summer Flower Garden Watercolor Painting

Summer Flower Garden Watercolor Painting


Imagine a summer flower garden, a-hum with bees and the buzz of hovering hummingbirds. Smell the mingled fragrances of herbs and soil and green growing things, the spicy tang of pollen, the peppery bite of nasturtiums and the unmistakable incense of marigolds. Do you feel the sun on your face? Surrounded by flowers in the peace of the garden, what magic!

This painting is a love song to summer. It's a sonnet to my garden. Frame it and hang it in your home and each time you look at it you'll be transported to a sunny summer afternoon in the garden.

I wrote about my process of this painting here on my blog.
