These gorgeous glads were given to my husband many years ago by a friend at work.  They return every year, though they should not!  In this very spot, I also have calla lilies that return each year - here in Zone 5!  Craziness!  As I sketch these in ink and watercolor, I long to paint them in oils.  Working in miniature, ink and watercolor are the perfect medium.  I can work very fast with ink, letting the blooms unfold naturally.  Working out the thought process here, the oil painting should be effortless.  I love this time spent in the garden!  Painting number 2727 in 2727 days.
