Nasturtiums painting

I'm not sure of the date on this watercolor, circa the summer of 1986, or 1987. I had carefully trained these nasturtiums to cover an ugly concrete and rebar wall in John Oliver Simon's back yard. He, not seeing the beauty of my handiwork, tore them all out while he was readying the garden though they were not taking up any garden real estate. I was heartbroken, I salvaged what blossoms I could, and then painted them. Watercolor and gouache.
