As the non-hurricane swept out of our area, I saw Herb Plotnik sitting in his little country store (a medium-sized shed, really), looking dejected.

So I bought some. The flowers had suffered, I will say that. They didn't last long, but they were gorgeous while they did last. And it made me happy to help Herb out a little.

Here's Herb, and here are the flowers I painted:

Hi, Patrick! Thank you so much for your comment. I'm glad you like the painting - the colors really almost pulse in real life. It was lots of fun.
