plein air, 10" x 8", oil, 'Ellen's Geraniums'
Some people think geraniums smell really bad! Personally, they are one of my favorite flowers because I can bring them inside in the fall to have beautiful blooms adorn my windows all winter long. Even a bit neglected, they seem to thrive. I only notice their strong fragrance when I remove the spent blossoms.
I love to paint geranium florals, especially the vivid flowering reds against the complementary leafy greens. Stunning not stinky!!
