Marigold Magic Abstract Flower Art

I am reminded of the sun when I look at this painting even thought the subject was a bright orange marigold bloom. I love these flowers, marigolds in the garden are such a treat. They keep the bugs away and and are so pretty to look at.
My garden in the spring is a magical place to be. Here in Winthrop this flower will show up in about June depending on where exactly you live. Twisp, Winthrop, Mazama and Carlton each have their own time when it blooms. Seattle has a much longer growing season than we do.

"The French marigold (Tagetes patula) is a species in the daisy family (Asteraceae). It is native to the Americas with several naturalised populations around the world."
"The flower is an annual, occasionally reaching 0.5 m by 0.3 m. In some climates it flowers from July to October. In its native habitat of the highlands of central Mexico, blooms are produced from September to killing frost. Achenes ripen and are shed within two weeks of the start of bloom. The heads contain mostly hermaphrodite (having both male and female organs) florets and are pollinated primarily by beetles in the wild, as well as by tachinid flies and other insects. The leaves of all species of marigold include oil glands. The oils are pungent." - Wikipedia
