Yellow Cones

The nature preserve near my home is bursting with wildflowers right now. The prairie was burned earlier this year and everything has really taken off. The grasses are towering overhead and the mowed trail feels like a tunnel of flowers--the smell is amazing!

I love flowers, just really dislike painting them. I really had to suppress my flower anxiety to tackle this series of wildflower studies. I did really enjoy trying to capture that amazing mix of colors in the central part of the cone flowers.

I think this was a horror movie title, THIS not so scary. Just a happy little trail into a deep dark woods right?
