Flower Paintings for Floral Friday

Happy floral Friday! Today's post features flower paintings displayed by talented local artists at the Montgomery County Fair. I love the dogwood blooms in the above photo.

If I remember correctly, the photo above was one of the best in show winners for teen entrants. With the black eyed Susans, monarch butterflies, yellow-orange moth and vibrant green foliage it was even more striking in person.

 This painting may not have won any fair ribbons but I'd award it a cheerfulness ribbon.

I loved how all the little dots came together for a bright and fun scene in the above painting.

This (presumably watercolor) poppy painting drew my eye and reminded me of the gorgeous poppy displays at the U.S. National Arboretum.

Happy weekend and may God bless you!
