summer dreaming

"Crazy Poppy Heads" and "A New Dawn", paintings I did a few weeks ago, need a companion I think. I've been wanting to paint Foxgloves for quite a while. Around here these grow wild in shady places and are pink, yellow or white.

What I really love about Foxgloves is looking deep inside and studying the dots. These are meant to be intriguing to bees. Perhaps I'm part bee?
