I finished this 8×10″ acrylic painting today, inspired by the hibiscus I’m growing on my porch garden. It’s on stretched canvas and the sides are painted a dark green.
I’ve tried to capture the brilliance of this bloom that lasts only a day. I’ve used layers and layers of reds and greens and yellows. The background is smooth and the flower itself more textured.
I’m in the process of documenting and posting more of my art. Stay tuned for that.
