Royal Mix- Marigolds

Royal Mix                         8" x 8"                   oil on linen 
I am told this variety of marigolds is called Royal Mix. And that seems a perfect name for the wonderfully golden color that they have. The crowns of intense color really made a nice spotlight for the focus of this one. These were waiting for someone to come along and nab them on a table at a garage sale.

Mary the marigolds are beautiful but my eye keeps going to that red pot. So rich and intense. Love it.

I'm not usually drawn to yellow or orange in paintings, but I think this is really nice. It's a striking color combination.
