Frostbitten Zinnias©2009C.L.Burgess alla prima oil on paper 8x4"
I will be in Denver for a couple more days. The condo I am renting has some pretty small gardens. When I arrived a month ago, the zinnias, daisies and nasturtium were prolific. This past week brought low temperatures at night. Fall has arrived.
While the trees are in full autumn glory,sadly, the flowers faded fast. I went out in the early morning on one of the few gray days Denver has and painted these before they turned brown.
Low key garden..lots of textures, very little light.
