Blue & Gold Wildflowers

It's winter, but I still have flowers on the brain.......

I discovered this awesome color palette with this painting kind of by accident.  It's hard to describe how I choose colors for my paintings, except to say that lots of the time they are totally arbitrary.  I wasn't looking at blue and gold flowers as I painted this, I just felt like going with cool colors so this is what happened!
