Aurora Geranium

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.


  1. I agree about geraniums in arrangements and that is a beautiful painting!

    1. Thank you Anne! You've been doing some amazing work lately!
