This one is from my backyard. I have a lovely Hibiscus tree that I move outside in the summer and it blossoms with the most impressive blooms. I liked the foreshortened view that makes it look like the flower is giant. I worked on this one for two weeks off and on. At times I wanted to paint over it, but I'd put it away and work on the foxgloves. Which was also giving me grief. Bounced back and forth between two paintings that I wasn't feelin' the love from either, but I was determined and kept at it. I think this one came out well after all. Sometimes all you need to do is give it time.
