Fragrant Mock Orange, 11x14, Oil


This is a view of part of the porch at the Maine farmhouse.  The Mock Orange  bush was in full bloom when we arrived, and more beautiful flowers bloomed daily.  If you've never smelled them, they kind of smell like Lilies of the Valley - on steroids.  My husband's grandmother, Margaret Croft, introduced me to this plant, and every time I smell them, I think of that generous and gracious lady.

  7. Very nice. Looks lovely there! My sister had a huge mock orange growing outside her kitchen window. I now have a small one but no blooms yet. I love them!

  9. This painting is so summery and refreshing! Evocative. I can smell the waft of verdant flowers. What a great life you have!! I love Maine in the summer.

  11. Kelley, This is beautiful! I just love these blues, and greens, which are, "Kelley Colors"! I think of these as your signature colors. So warm, and sunny!
