Clouds and Showers

Showers of Gold, 6 x 8" oil on linen

I did this little plein air painting on the evening of August 11, 2011.
I love these flowers. They're a little past their peak now, but still so bright and unruly. I've been told my great-grandma grew these flowers, and have always heard them called "Showers-of-Gold". They grow tall and are prone to blowing over. I happen to know that they make a great hiding place if one wants to eat doughnuts undisturbed.

In other paint-news, I've been studying the clouds.
