Morning Bachelor Buttons


Framed 17 x 20”

Watercolor sealed with archival varnish

“On one of my early spring walks, I discovered these tiny lavender “Bachelor Buttons”.  I often saw purple thistles but never these beautiful blooms.  I went back to the spot with my phone to photograph for a painting.  These flowers gave me the perfect subject to begin with wet washes of color that captured the surrounding textures.  It was a bright expression of spring, a happy blessing.”

 Winner of the March SWS Painting of the Month in the professional category is Chérie Giddens with her painting, “Morning Bachelor Buttons”. She’s pictured with Soon Y. Warren who was the March guest artist and juror of the professional category.
