Flower Path

11 x 14 Pastel on paper (framed size 16 x 20)

I did an oil painting of this scene a while ago, and just redid it in pastel for a show I entered. It is from a local flower farm, and a favorite of mine. We had a bonus day here today, low 80's and lots of sun. Just one day like this, so we savor them when they come. Tomorrow, back down in the 60's, these flower gardens are fading, but the colored leaves will take their place!


  1. This has such a sense of joy to it, and I love the slow curve of the path that leads me right into this beautiful painting.

  2. I could just reach out and pick one of those beautiful flowers Mary Anne!

  3. The flower beds are just fabulous. The colors are amazing. cant take my eyes off.

  4. Wow, this looks like it must of have been a lot of work. Pretty garden. I got outside to paint on Saturday too. Would that all fall days would be like that!

  5. Dear Mary Ann,

    I very much appreciate the light in your pieces and the stories behind them. Am energized by your use of color and light. Will look forward to seeing more of your work. Peace and continued good things for you.
