The series "Barb's Bouquets" includes over twenty five paintings. Lifetime friend Barb sends photos to Leoma of her bouquets she picks from her gardens. Almost daily during the summer months Leoma gets a new image of the incredible flowers Barb grows. Both share a passion for flowers and have traveled the world to enjoy and study spectacular blooms. Barb is the Master Gardener and visits Matlacha each fall to help Leoma plan and plant perennials for Lovegrove Gallery and Gardens winter's season. Leoma was inspired to create this special painting series in honor of their friendship.
