Brown Velvet, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Rich, chocolate brown velvet petals, highlighted with touches of rusty yellow... a sprinkle of golden pollen encircles the raised center... Rudbeckia glow throughout the day and night. The blooms capture the sunshine and then illuminate the garden from dusk on into the night. Natural solar powered lights... their petals seem to collect the sun's energy, offering it back to us via their glowing faces, lighting up our gardens in the evening ... From late summer into the fall we can appreciate their beauty.
