Last Bloom

Last Bloom, 6 x 6

At my home in Atlanta, I have an almost totally shaded yard, so the idea of a hibiscus thriving or even growing,  is pretty ridiculous.  Notwithstanding that fact, about 3 weeks ago I bought a hibiscus plant, intending to paint a couple of flowers in a jar or something.  Basically,  I liked the creamy colors and the red centers.  

Well, I never got around to it, but I did get a moment to paint this small study; since we leave for France tomorrow,  I guess the hibiscus moment has passed.  I intend to post from Provence, and am excited to breathe in the essence of that special place.  A bientot!


  1. Beautiful painting and just plain gorgeous color. Love the creamy colors. The silver vase is just pure Southern fun! Travel safe Nancy and have a blast. Look forward to seeing you when you get back!!

  2. Une peinture délicate...
