"Here's Looking at You"

6 x 8"
oil on linen panel (Ray Mar)

I know I should be painting another fall flower, but here I am with a honeysuckle.  Sorry. I was attracted to the orange and the contrast.  I'm very pleased with the painterly quality of the brush work on this one.  My goal is to stay loose.  So, the tiny details in the two flowers drove me a bit crazy.

Reference photo was taken on April 10. I don't know how I jumped so far back. I'll try to stay more seasonal. This vine was right before the pergola on the path down from the rose circle.
