Trumpet Flowers 3

I'm going out to paint with the SWOPA group this afternoon at Alms Park in Cincinnati, but before I do that, I wanted to finish this 8x10, oil on canvas.

The Trumpet Flower Series is a group of paintings that are like close-ups from the Fence Row Series. I started painting these trumpet flowers just after doing some research for one of my stained glass windows. They are a native species to this region and can be found climbing over fence rows and up telephone poles out in the rural areas around here. The humming birds love them and they bloom for an extended period, from about mid-June till the end of August.
