I've searched many sites to no avail. I have these little flowers in a pot that my wife planted last year but can't find the packet they came in. I have this image but can upload the original if needed.
Thumb of 2017-03-31/mschoppe67/212137. I don't think the original image really help much.

Long spur makes me think columbine or nasturtium, but colors and flower generally seem more orchid like. Really have to pass on that ID.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

It looks like Toadflax, maybe this one?



This one's a different colour but shows the flower in close-up for comparison:

Thank you, I believe the last image Sooby shared was the correct flower as it looks almost identical in shape to the one I have. I really like adding what type of flower something is when I put it on my photography page.

Some people know a bloom well enough to recognize it w/o foliage. ;)

Your wifes painting is a real credit to her.
The flowers/colour are botanically very accurate and recognisable!

Wife planted the flowers. I took the photo and edited it. It was a joint effort. :)

This Toadflax bloomed about a week later.

Ooops.
Sorry I misread your post as painted not planted.
