Recent paintings.... but I could still be working on them
We have an orange hibiscus in our backyard, but I LOVE the giant yellow hibiscus in Hawaii. Some how my love of the yellow flower came through in this painting of our orange hibiscus. Really liked how the sun was hitting the blooms at sunset.
This painting was inspired by a photo my aunt took in her front yard in Texas. Knowing I could not replicate the stunning photo she took, I have put my own twist on the subject in my painting.
This will be my final attempt at hibiscus for this year I think. The shadows are inspiring, compelling and so hard.
This is from a photo of the pond in the backyard. While the lillies are aways special, I was trying to capture the reflection of the sky and clouds.
