I think I managed to render the nasturtiums just in time. Last week I spotted a hummingbird making good use of their nectar before her long flight south. It was such a beautiful sight! Every time she poked her beak into the flower it looked as though she were wearing a colorful pointed hat. I will miss those guys and the flowers that keep them happy. Time to hunker down for winter studio projects, (and there are MANY!)

The season is coming down to the wire now. I have a few marigolds and nasturtiums that are hanging on for dear life and are begging to be painted before the frost does away with them. Perhaps I should have rendered the nasturtiums first for they are far more vulnernable but...I have the mind of an artist...logic eludes me...
