Tangerine Gem Marigold Watercolor Painting

Tangerine Gem Marigold Watercolor Painting


You may not pay much attention to marigolds. Maybe you have some growing in your garden right now. They're bright, colorful and sturdy and they keep blooming and blooming till the first hard frost.

This delicate variety, with its tiny flowers and fern-like leaves, has a childlike, old-fashioned, cottage garden charm. But it doesn’t wow like some other flowers.

Doesn't that make them even more likable?

This painting depicts a stem of Tangerine Gem Marigolds with three open flowers and two buds. The flowers and leaves are realistic, but also fanciful. The painting elevates a common plant to highlight its beauty. It is a reminder that there is beauty in the ordinary. That there is magic and joy in the everyday. Frame it and hang it on your wall and it will whisper its reminders to you.

The third to last photograph shows this painting with another 5x7 marigold painting. Framed and hung together they’d make a joyful pair.
