My friend, Eve, asked me if I'd tried painting chicory. I hadn't. What a great reason to try.
Chicory is a roadside staple out here. It grows in every dry boulevard and ditch and blooms a glorious blue from late June through September.

I used phthalo blue and dioxazine violet for the flowers. Sap and Undersea greens with a bit of raw sienna for the greenery.
I'm loving that blue.

Now that they're matted and framed and look all dressed up, I'm wondering what small florals should I try out next?
