St. Simons Island

This large coneflower was another sale at St. Simons Island this past weekend.  A very sweet young couple vacationing from the Atlanta area purchased this and told me they planned to place it in their nursery.  What I assume to be their first baby is due in just a few weeks.  What a pleasure it is to meet and do business with such nice people.  I just love painting these flowers.  I find that people just can't look at them without smiling.  Instead of wildflowers maybe I should call them happy flowers.  It amazes me, but several people looked around my booth this past weekend, and they all said the same word after looking at my paintings.  Happy.  I can't think of a better compliment really.
