Love that you used the fence as a backdrop, Pam. It makes these beauties just pop!

I'm so jealous! I have one little coneflower plant struggling in my yard. I don't know if it's the heat, the drought, or the salt air, but it is having a hard time. It blooms little not-very-robust blooms.

Nice work on the coneflowers! The fence in the back is the perfect foil, too!

Your flowers are great...the brushwork and color range is great! You've inspired me to paint my Cone Flowers....they are crazy in my garden, I just bought some orange and double bloom cone flowers.

Love the colors you used in this one, Pam. Flowers are fun to paint, don't you agree, and coneflowers are everyone's favorite.

Pam, Love the orange and violet color combo! Beautiful work! Your fence must be a show stopper!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

The color of the fence in the background provides a perfect setting for the coneflowers. Beautiful!

Nice color in the petals and I enjoy the neutral background which really sets them off!

Sherry, Thank you. and, since it's rained the night before, the fence was much darker than normal. It worked!

Thank you Carmen, Aren't flowers funny. I'd try moving it next spring. Maybe it needs new surroundings.

Kelley, Thank you. We have to have a fence to keep the deer out, and the flowers growing.!

Thank you Kim and Dana, Yes, I love the shape and color of these guys!

Thank you Dayna, Can't wait to see yours. what are double bloom cones?

Carol, Thanks. I love coneflowers and want to plant even more!

Nancy and Claire, Thank you! The whole purpose of our fence is to stop the deer!

Thank you Linda, Glad you like the neutral background. I often fill it w/ leaves, etc, but since the fence was there, it just lent itself.

Amy, Thank you. The flowers do look rhythmey!
