The chrysanthemum is the flower of the moment. all along pathways, in gardens, on balconies, in public parks, they accentuate the splendor of autumn color. The warmth and depth of ochres and siennas.

Preparation for fall chrysanthemums
OK. I now creating needs to happen in uneven numbers for optimum composition and harmony…3,5,7, etc. Somehow I didn’t add the 7th rose. So now I only have six.

Painting in process
My garden is starting to run empty of flowers. A few roses and the nasturtiums are still hanging on though. We had a sudden spurt of cold and rain last week which gave the nasturtiums quite a knock and I hastily had to pick them before I had nothing left. So, painting was done in the atelier…not the same as painting sur le motif in the garden.
