I love flowers and I have always loved Georgia O'Keefe's close up paintings of flowers. Most summers I have a variety of flowers blooming in my garden and like trying to capture their beauty and awesomeness. Bachelor buttons are some of my favorites because of their colors - blueish purple... so cool... (no pun intended) Here is a close up painting of some bachelors buttons that kind of reminds me of a Georgia O'Keefe, yet not as abstract as hers tend to be. I just completed it, even though I took the reference picture sometime in late spring.
