Nasturtiums Revisited

    In my painting “Bucketful” I showed the bucket/planter that hangs on a post at the head of our driveway, overflowing with nasturtiums in mid-summer.  They are at their prime health and glory.  The nasturtiums you are looking at in the photo, are feeling a lot less vigorous, as the slow march toward winter begins to take its toll.
    While I miss the intense flashes of orange and yellow, I am still entranced by the twisting of the stems, the pale colors, and the limpness of the circular leaves that show in this photo.
