A Painting Day - Wild Flowers - Ruth Andre

4.5"x4.5" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge Painting Thirty-Nine
by Ruth Andre

During spring and summer the wildflowers appear in the valley. They are heirlooms from the past. The California Poppies arrive in the spring and cover the mountain sides and then a tiny white flower follows and then all seems to go dormant except for a few solitary flowers that usually only last a few days. When driving out of the valley I have seen small lilies and tiny sunflowers and then a few flowers with names unknown to me make a showing. The flowers are truly a welcome site among the dried grass. It has been, "A Painting Day".
