Impatiens Plants.still life,oil on canvas,7x5,price$100

I painted this impatiens plant on my deck last week. I also am posting the photo of the spot where I painted yesterday up at Mt. Baker.
It is so much better to paint from life then from a photo. Because you can't see the color and depth in a photo. Look back at yesterday's painting.
