Lupine


There is a story about this painting. I started out painting from a photo I had taken years ago in Southern California The lupine was in full bloom on the mountain sides and it was a delight to travel the main highway and enjoy such beauty. I have a real love for lupine. It is not fancy but has the aged beauty that makes it spectacular to see in bloom. With that said the painting changed as I moved the palette knife and once again I have a very contemporary painting. This maybe the beginning of a new series? Enjoying the quiet week-end made for, "A Painting Day".
