Both are very pretty, but the flowers are truly stunning.

Are not those two colors in the flowers the best together...Just stunning...and then to capture the same colors in the art!!! Nice post!

Fabulous photo of the flowers!

The blue flower isn't a gilia; it's a plain ole cornflower, aka "Bachelor's Button." But then I love blue flowers and especially cornflowers, so to me there's nothing "plain" about it! There is something so magical about cornflowers in spite of how common they are.

Anyway, thanks for photographing my two favorite wildflowers together. Did you realize when you took the picture that the colors are opposites on the color wheel, or was that just a happy accident?

Tash, these are just beautiful. I love these colors. I changed my banner to flowers of that beautiful blue color; don't know their names.
