Pansies in Copper Pot
12x12 Oil on Canvas
Pansies are so hearty. Hearty flowers are for folks like me. One of my goals in life is to become a great gardener. I plan to spend some time raising these favorite flowers one day and have gorgeous flower beds.....goals or dreams, maybe a little of each. I have grown pansies though, and they stayed beautiful for months at a time. Since they can endure a lot of cool weather they seem to relish in the spots that I have placed them in the past. This still life includes one of my favorite copper items, a blue pottery vase that was given to me by a sweet little friend in art school, a white rice bowl and pansies of whites and purples that I had in a large garden pot this fall.
