“Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts.” – Sigmund Freud

Spiky Flowers

This flower is a type of Sedum which is part of a larger family commonly known as stonecrops.. The flower on this plant is just amazing. It starts small and then just keeps blooming and growing over the course of a couple of weeks. It is such fun to go out every day and see how much it has changed. Placed next to some ground cover and a tree branch it is really striking. I love being in my garden and taking photographs out there as well.

I very much enjoyed  turning this photograph into a painting. Look closely and see the very small brush strokes. This painted look gives the photograph a much softer feeling than the original. I hope you like it.
