"Fall Flower Garden" oil landscape painting, flowers

It's the time of year when Leigh's Fall flowers start blooming in the garden....I can't resist the color as the beautiful late season light hits the reds and yellows......I painted this very same scene in 2008 when there was a lot more sunflowers in it(click here to view). The two paintings are similar yet very different. It is interesting to see the progression of style and paint application.

When I had the frames made up for my Cascade series , one of them was miscut the wrong size....never wanting to waste any resources I painted this landscape to fit the reject frame.
