BACHELOR BUTTON (Mountain Bluet)
100 Paintings in 100 Days 'Inspirations from a Back Yard' Challenge

'Bachelor Button (Mountain Bluet)'
Oil 5 x 7 04/100

Day 04! Another flower from my gardens.
These bachelor buttons grow profusely in my
back flower bed. They are one of the first
perennials to bloom, and if I am good about
dead-heading them they bloom through the
summer months. Of course they are blue, and
therefore one of my favorites.

If you are interested in purchasing this painting,
please contact me. Thank you.

Tellement beau le bleuet. Il avait déserté nos bordures de champs à cause des pesticides... Heureusement il réapparaît peu à peu. Beau et doux rêve en regardant celui que vous nous présentez. Très joli... merci

What an interesting flower (and beautiful painting!); I'd not heard of 'Bachelor's Buttons' before. Well done, Claire!

I've heard of Bachelor Buttons, but never knew what they looked like. I don't speak French, but is Marti saying that they are a natural pesticide? That would be a plus, in addition to their beauty. Great job on creating depth in the head of the flower and like the way you carried the blue color into the leaves. Nice painting.
