Chive Flower Close Up


The delicate detail of an chive flower.

1 in stock



I allow a clump of chives to spread into my flower garden because it is effortless and the pretty purple flowers add early color.  I decided to photograph the flower head with the macro lens on my camera to get a nice close up shot.  When I downloaded the photos I zoomed in even more and found out that the flower head isn’t just one flower, but a series of individual flowers clumped together.  Each one had a tiny white stamen hidden in the flower.  I thought that was so interesting that I decided to paint this in detail so other could share in the wonder of the complexity of a simple herb flower.

The watercolor painting is 5 x 7 inches.  The original is matted in a 11 x 14 in mat and shipped flat.

PRINTS Available upon request.
