Aurora Geranium 17x24" oil on linen
I've been keeping my geranium from last season in my house over the winter. I put it in a north window and didn't expect it to really do much more than survive, instead it thrived! It was loaded with big healthy blooms but I needed to dramatically cut it back before setting it outside for the summer. I put all those blooms in a vase and they looked so beautiful (especially to this flower starved gardener!). I had to paint them. They last such a long time as a cut flower I'm surprised you don't see them more often in arrangements.
