Behind the Canvas

Best friends should be together, that how it ought to be! The words to this childhood favorite kept playing through my mind as I painted this lively still life. The flowers were contributed from a variety of sources, but all from Alaskan gardens, in order to celebrate a visiting artist. And look how beautifully they all play together. Gladiolas, arctic rose, delphinium, and nasturtium, There is room for everyone to shine!
