We've had a late spring here in northern Utah. The wildflowers in the mountains are beginning to pop and there are patches of bright yellow all over the mountains and meadows.This painting showcases one of those beautiful yellow flowers. I don't know what they are, but they are a welcome site after a hard winter. Painted on Ampersand archival gessoboard. This painting took me two tries before I got a composition that I liked and the yellow of the glower to read well. As I've said before, the color yellow is not my favorite to paint with but I love the color itself. I felt like the shadow cast by the flower and vase added an interesting element to the composition.
