Monarch and Coneflowers

Working on a few paintings for an upcoming Flint Hills show, I've been in search of wonderful Kansas wildflowers along the roadsides. The sunflowers aren't yet in bloom here, so I'm choosing another perennial favorite, the purple coneflower!  Butterflies and bees love the native wildflowers, and we have plenty of monarchs in the Midwest - though I hear they are scarce further west.  So today, I enjoy my sketch time among the coneflowers, welcoming the winged visitors as they pass.  Love these warm summer days!  Painting number 4295 in 4295 days.
