Dahlia Face

"Dahlia Face"
9" x 12"
Oil on hardboard panel

Late in the summer when every bud has opened, and leaves begin to favor a bronzed version of themselves, the dahlia sends out tendrils to adorn her pretty face.

The whole bed of them looked like this; center petals coiled like snail shells, the kind you might find on a garden path.  I'll move on to a more traditional image next time.

As always, I appreciate when you visit.
