Aster Garden by Julie Riker

16x20 oil

This was commissioned as a 70th birthday present for a very special lady.
Now that she has received the gift I can finally post it.
I expanded my limited palette for this one, adding some Quinocridone Magenta and Dioxazine Purple for the vivid colors in the flowers.
