Blue Flags

10" x 8" watercolour on gessoed 140# Arches cold-pressed paper

Blue flags are a favourite of mine. They are so simple to grow, indestructible I suspect and may be a weed in the minds of some. But to me, they are nostalgia. I’m sure they’ve been in every garden I’ve ever had, going back to my childhood. I also love the particular blue they are and the zest of their contrasting yellow throat.
