Smoky Mountain Morning Pastel Painting

'Smoky Mountain Morning' 8x10 pastel
Last Sunday we drove the Miata up to ride the 'Tail of the Dragon'. It is a road at the border of North Carolina and Tennessee and it has 318 curves in 11 miles! Before we got there we had to stop to take photos of this wonderful field of purple flowers. (Thanks Carolyn) I have tried to look them up but I'm not sure what they are. They were tall and came in various shades of purples...not lupines...and had very fine 'dill like' leaves. Anybody know what they are? They sure made a statement though! Oh, the road was fun too!

I believe the flowers were larkspur (aka delphinium). Sure would look good on my wall!

Thank you so much Mary! That has been bugging me. I would love for this to be on your wall too!
