Anemones at Linda Hall Library

What fun to find a new flower in the garden - one that I've never seen growing in Missouri!  Long ago I admired these beauties in California, and here they are in the Linda Hall Library garden!  The blooms remind me of poppies, with their paper thin petals and long reaching stems.  Using my oils, I started by laying in the blooms, loose and with an eye to their color.  The white blooms were flanked by the red, with a few purple tinged whites in the mix.  What a lovely day for a loose capture of anemones!  Painting number 3044 in 3044 days.
