The Flowers are Starting to Open

After days of heavy rains, the sky's cleared and the flowers stood up and opened. Last Saturday, I went on my annual garden walk with my garden club. My garden was included in the walk, but most of my flowers are still not open. My yard had a show of Iris, but are now gone. I took this photo of a group of flowers, not sure what kind they were, but they were blowing in the wind and where so full of color that I couldn't resist their beauty.

This one I painted last night on 300 lb Arches, size 6 x 8. Used watercolor and a little white gouache. Doing paintings in yellow are definitely a challenge!
