091116 12x16 no2 Zinnias and Marigolds by the Goldfish Pool

This is a plein air oil painting done by the goldfish pool in my front yard.  I made the glass sculpture from recycled glass and it features blue glass with a crystal topper birdbath.  I planted zinnias and marigold seeds early in the summer just so I could paint the flowers by the pool. 

There is also a potted habenaro pepper plant loaded with orange peppers on the right side of the painting.  I have wintered over that habenaro plant for several years now.  Nothing like a year round supply of hot peppers!  I learned my lesson the year I got bit by a copperhead and was laid up for two months.  My garden fell apart and I didn't get any hot peppers to dry and grind.  When I tried to buy organic hot peppers in the winter I discovered they were totally wimpy!!  No fire!
