Red Mum

22x30 watercolor of a single bright red chrysanthemum, an older work that has been sold.  In this large format the common mum takes on an added importance.  In another month or so we'll be seeing them arrive for fall.

Gorgeous--love the center and that yellow, but especially how each petal is articulated!

I remember my mother growing hundreds of those! Lovely palette Kay, the dark blue background works to good effect with the bright red of the chrysanthemum.
