These brown/red/tinged with yellow rudbeckias were planted last year, and now I find them dotting my garden in places I couldn't imagine - but now love. These Cherokee Sunsets are far perkier than my painting shows... but I find that when I'm in the throes of a learning curve, I am more challenged to create in my traditional way ...especially after a long day at the office ...

We're off today with a group of guests to visit the various farms in our county ... I hope to catch up with everyone tomorrow!

Have a great Tuesday!

This color is something I have never seen before. Beautiful!

Yes, such an unusual color. Very nice and I like the way you've "led" the paint down from the petals.Very cool idea.

Enjoy your farm visits.
Big hugs,

Lovely!!! I love the idea of the paint drips from the petals.

Have a great day!
