Bouquet wth Red-Hot Pokers

Here is the newest bouquet painting and it is a very special bouquet. Carol-Lyn Sakata brought it to me from flowers from her mother's garden, which is to be redeveloped. This is the garden that is the triptych painting now in Richmond General Hospital. I've never painted red-hot pokers before- never seen any for sale in a florist and I don't have any in my garden. Also, it was so lovely to get such a beautiful bouquet so nicely arranged and with such a nice assortment of flowers. It was both a challenge and a pleasure to paint. The painting is 24 x 24.
