Summer Garden


"Arranging Summer Flowers" Acrylic 18"x 24"
By Mary Maki Rae 2017(c)
****************************************
Nothing I enjoy more in the Summer than Planting - Arranging and Painting Flowers. 
Above is the larger painting on canvas I've been working on recently (this image is slightly cropped)- more details to add . . . .depending on the weather . . . . I enjoy the classic Petunias- they thrive in the Sun or Shade- and smell so sweet in warm Summer evenings. 


I used a softer - quiet Palette for the Painting above
