Grape Hyacinth

4" x 6" original watercolor

Grape Hyacinth from my wife's garden. Much
harder to paint than it appears. Their leaves
are kind of stringy and long and look messy.
But the bluish-purple flowers just pop-up.
This was not what I planned for today. Early
this morning Linda quietly laid a photo she took
from her garden on my desk. I recognize a
challenge. Just the drawing took half the day
and the painting the other half. Notice how late
I am getting this posted! I keep telling her I am
not a flower painter... she's not listening!
