Fiery Heleniums

PaintingHelenium

Heleniums or sneezeweed, so called because the flowers used to be ground up to make snuff. I made this painting of oil on canvas on one of the hottest days in July. The heleniums were the only flowers that survived the drought in our garden! It measures 60cm x 60cm framed and is available from the Russell Gallery Tel 0208 780 5228.
