Wisteria (Harkness Park plein air)

8"x10" oil on linen mounted on archival panel

I've been waiting to paint this wisteria for the last couple years. It seems I always miss the bloom season in trying to get over to Harkness Park.  I'm either a week too early, or a week too late!  Yesterday was a fine day to get outside and paint- and YAY- my timing was great this year!

This is a lovely pattern of tone and colour. Love the soft blues and greens Roxanne. Wisteria doesn't flower for years but while we are waiting it grows and grows. I ended up with one which grew right up to the gutters but didn't flower. It began to dislodge the tiles on the roof so I cut it all down.

Thanks!, yes Sheila, it is a really voracious grower & I've seen it tear apart small sheds & outbuildings - so I knew to never plant it on my own property. That's why I'm so happy to see such a large spread of it at this public park on these cement columns! It's beautiful, but wicked for the potential damage it can cause!!
