The photohunt theme is painted. I used to have a variety of dianthus called painted dianthus which was lost years ago during a drought. I had this variety for 5 or 6 years with it coming back from the roots each year. Below is a shot I took in 1999 with my first digital camera so the quality isn't very good.I think my macro shots of the morning glory almost look like they were painted.
My neighbor's iris below looks like it was painted to me. I guess the morning glory and iris are a stretch for the theme but I do tend to think of flowers as having been painted by an invisible artist.
For more photohunters, please visit the home of the hunt on Saturday. I am posting early as usual.
The lovely colours of Spring makes the world looks like a painting. :)
wow! the first two photos looks like a painting. the colors looks abstract in the second photo.
Definitely they were, carver. The second one is absolutely stunning.
The macro shot does look as though it was painted. Lovely :)
Beautiful macro shot, Carver
My entry this week: in HERE. I hope that you can stop by as well. Thanks
Colorful flowers make a good painting~
the lovely pictures look like a painting indeed.
How beautiful!!!! I am thinking about going to hunt flowers this weekend too. I miss that and have time for once! :)
Works for me!

Glorious take on the theme, Carver, love your shots.

Lovely springy flowers,Carver! Happy PH:)
Beautiful! I love the macro shot!
Pretty colors and flowers. It really looks like a painting!
Great pics! The colours on the flowers do looked painted on.
The second one is stunning Carver!
It looks like a glorious painting.
Mine is up too!
Have a great weekend :)
Now that dianthus is really nice. Thanks for the name.
I agree ... I also think of flowers as having been painted by an invisible artist. And your lovely photos proves that.
Nature's paintings indeed. Wonderful photos, especially the macro.
Have a great weekend Carver.
these flowers are positively radiant! wonderful
These are such beautiful shots; I love them all. The second one is magical, for sure. I agree that Mother Nature is the best artist!
Hope you have a great weekend.
I love the morning glory shot. It's so nicely "painted". :P
P/s: You should have a beautiful garden there. :)
What beautiful colours. I love the way that morning glories seem to have a sun at their heart. Gerat shots! Happy weekend
Wow - beautiful!!!
Hey, Carver, I wouldn't call that a "stretch", I'd call that "artistic license" and I believe that those Photohunter themes you do probably have a great amount of license. I loved the shots of the morning glory glowing and the iris, my favorite flower! It does look painted.
Fabulous photos for this week! :)
Beautiful shots of GOD's paintings... perfect for the theme!! I love irises!
Hi Carver --
Know what you mean about mother nature often seeming to be the world's greatest artist. :)
Ilove your photos! And great takes on the painted theme. I agree, your capture of the morning glory looks painted.
Carver, i adore the second shot!
I love the morning glory, it's glowing! My daughter was supposed to plant some for my for Mother's day, but the seeds are still sitting on my counter (Dad's job). Happy hunting!
I like the last flower. It's very beautiful!! almost look like a painting! :)
Beautiful colors. I love the morning glory.
Wow..beautiful shots indeed!
I like your creative thinking here, Carver. ;-)
Lovely colors, why settle for something painted when you can have these in their natural color? :)
Your macro shots do resemble painted flowers.
Fabulous colors, Carver! Nature offers marvelous treasores and you know so well capture the luminosity of those flowers!
lovely colors...yes, definitely, a master artist painted these flowers.
wow i think the sight of those flowers brought me joy. you were right about the second one - definitely pain-like, and beautiful!
Awesome shots...I truly love flowers.
Mine's up, too
Gorgeous choices... natural paintings are almost always superior ;-)
Painted or not, they are worth looking at.
Oh I love the first picture, all red on a green backdrop.
Amazing shots, my compliments :)
Painted by the hand of God! Beautiful shots -- I especially LOVE that morning glory!
Those are beautiful shots. They're definitely painted - by God.
Beautiful flowers. They do look painted. Excellent job on all.
I think they're wonderful, Carver! I agree that many flowers absolutely look like they were painted with an invisible hand. :-)
My Painted entry is up, too. Hope you'll stop by!
Nature is always the best artist, isn't it? :)
Nature is the most magnificent artist... we humans are mere copiers. Mine is up here.
Painted flowers. How creative! I love your take. I have never seen painted dianthus before. Too bad you lost them. They are beautiful.
The hand of the Lord painted those flowers, so I think your photos are majestic! Love the Iris! come on over for a visit soon
I love the first pic. Can be a very nice wallpaper for my laptop. ^_^
