Pickerel Weed

I have had little time in the studio but I have had some so I continue to work on my new piece.
I have added some Pickeral Weed...as wetland plant found in Wisconsin and other northern states as well as Canada.  I love the Pickerel  Weed  when I am on the lake near Minocqua.  It has these small purple blooms which attract bees and butterflies but it also has heart shaped flowers.....on long green stems.  I have tried to capture it here.

The store is in a full mark down sale now.  We are busy from the time we get there until we close.
We will close our doors the first week of July but have another month to fully move out.
Stressful and yet joyous all wrapped up in one.

I LOVE this one! The colors just knock my socks off....can't wait to see more! And I'm so happy everything is moving right along with the store. "One door closes, another opens" seems appropriate.

Those leaves are a great shape and there is tons of movement which I really like! This one is really coming along:)

Good news about the store and I know what you mean about tons of work but very rewarding:)
