Heavenly Blue

5 x 7 inches, oil on board.
I've wanted to grow and paint these morning glories for over a decade. Kay must have several green thumbs because the seeds she planted last spring have taken over several fences and covered them with flowers. They're called Heavenly Blue. Unless we get a freeze in the next day or so I hope to paint these again.

WOW Mark! Really lovely. My parents grew morning glories in their yard in the old house on Campbell Streeet (one of the main streets in Sandusky)and they looked just like the one you painted. Heavenly Blue is a good name for them. Eventually they got rid of them because they were taking over the fence and marching over toward the garage. I'll never forget the sunlight shining through them.

Those morning glories were slow to take off, so I kept planting more. Now people are telling me they are going to grow like crazy and come back year after year. Oh dear. I thought they were annuals.

I love the composition, looking down into the morning glory and the glass. Also, your clever brushy handling of the glass and all the shades of gray in the table top.

The blue of the morning glory is perfect and true. Wow.

Rachel, just passing through

I love morning glories. I have them in my yard as well. Cheerful flowers, aren't they?
