Blue Clematis

Usually I like using my own photographs or sketches.  However this lastest painting was inspired by a photograph taken by Vivian Hughes Wilcox of Georgette Tardif's garden in Calgary, Alberta.  It was such a glorious, sunlit bloom, I couldn't resist trying my hand at it, with their generous permission to inspire myself for this painting. A bit looser work but that's what I'm striving for these days.  Hope you enjoy!
