Crazy Colorful Cone Flowers Finally Finished

These flowers were so much fun to paint!  I really tried hard not to go into too much detail and let the watercolors do what they do best.  My focus was mainly on using a minimal number of brush strokes along with a bold use of color. 

If you have a picture of a flower or flowers you think would be fun for me to paint, send them to me via email at  Or commission me to do a painting featuring your favorite blooms from your garden.  A painting is a great way to remember those summer colors once the season comes to an end.  Again, thanks for viewing and sharing my blog and paintings with family and friends. 


  1. love, love, love this one. i have these flowers in my backyard and always want to paint them. however, what i imagine, is stiff and boring. here, you have done them in a fantastic loose magic of watercolor way!

  2. Thank you artists we all have our fair share of unsuccessful paintings. This one, however, is definitely one of my successes. Currently it is hanging in an exhibit at Dawes Arboretum in Newark, Ohio.
