George Boutwell’s


Painting completed in: 1999

Last year we were given a cutting from a Passion Vine that was growing wild on another ranch and Martha planted it near the fence on the north side of our yard. It grew slowly at first, until this last summer when it took over a large section of fence and bloomed. Having only seen a Passion Flower in a Wildflower Field Guide , I had no idea of how large and beautiful they were. The Passion Flowers bloomed just after I had finished painting the paintings for the Wildflower Calendar, so I decided to paint this for my annual gift print ! For this season and all seasons we would like to express our extreme gratitude to all of you who have given your support and allowed us to follow our dreams in life and we hope you enjoy this gesture of our appreciation!
