Echinacea, 18" x 24" on Arches    
Echinacea

I love the simplicity of echinacea - like daisies, sort of, but pink.  They come back year after year, graceful - on strong stems, proud.  Our garden is kind of wild, unkempt, in light and shade.  I wanted this painting to appear as I see them, interspersed with other foligae, some shadows cast on the petals.
