Blue Morning Glory

12" x 9"
Watercolor on 140 lb acid free paper
Flowers are beautiful subjects, but I have been painting them almost every day since 2-3 weeks !I am glad that the project is over, finally and if things go as planned, all the twelve flowers that I have painted will take the form of a desk calendar.Each month has its own 'birth flower'; this morning glory is called the flower of September.This delicate flower is associated with affection.An interesting fact about these flowers is that they bloom with sunrise and die when the sun sets.
I hope you all have been enjoying Christmas festivities....have a nice day.
