I started this painting last autumn. The flowers are from a construction site that used to be a community garden (where I had done many of my flower paintings). After the painting had dried over the year I gave the background grey another lighter coat of paint and sharpened the edges of the rose hips and increased their intensity with can red and yellow to bring them forward. The flowers in the arrangement are purple rose mallow, calendula,camomile, snow berries, brown eyed Susan, speedwell, and rose hips.
