Summer Geraniums

                                          Summer Geraniums 6 x 8 oil on linen panel
These geraniums are the bright spot in my window planters, everything in the yard and garden is standing in water from way too much rain, much is rotting and it is hard to watch beautiful perenials die because of the excess water but my window boxes are glorious and I just had to paint this. I will publish the photo I worked from in my next blog, see if you can see the composition I saw.

  1. Wow! Wow! Wow! Just so beautiful! Love how you psinted the geraniums as is - no pot, or container. The background is incredible! Stunning.

  2. Me too. Beautiful, casual presentation, and the background is really adding. Thanks for posting-- very enjoyable.

  3. Jean, you portrayed the very "essence" of the geraniums..I love this painting...the background is soft and supporting of the flowers themselves and the colors are superb.
