The farm stand near my office has wonderful flowers, and I have been admiring the gladiolas for weeks. My mother loved these old fashioned elegant flowers and planted them when I was a child. So yesterday I bought a stem, and this morning, while it was pouring outside, enjoyed mixing the flower's gorgeous colors. "Gladiola" is a 6"X6" oil.


  1. When I first saw this painting, even before I read your commentary, I thought, "Marney." She'd have loved this. Beautiful painting, Bob.

  2. Sister Kay, you have made my day. (Our nickname for our Mother was Marney.)
