This close-up of nature's beauty lasts for only a brief moment, blooming for about one week in the beginning of June in Southern Ontario. Extravagant purple/blue petals fluttering on top of tall stems in the late spring breeze have earned these flowers the nickname of "Flags". This painting was used as a reference example in a book by Lexi Sundell called PAINTING ACRYLIC FLOWERS A - Z published by Quarto Publishers.

 A variety of garden paintings including water pump still life art and flower paintings such as poppies, roses. peonies are also available.
