Sunlit Ti Leaves

Fresco Watercolor Painting on Board, 8" X 8"
Unsold paintings can be purchased for $95 plus $6 s/h: from the artist

You don't need to necessarily have flower in a composition to have a beautiful painting of leaves. These happen to be Hawaiian Ti leaves and I just love how the sunlight comes through them in the morning and late afternoon. Fire oranges and reds mixed with greens and soft lavender shadows create a peaceful yet energized piece. My own garden is so lush and I take frequent breaks between working on paintings. I'll either go out into my backyard filled with tropical glories or I'll sit under my front lanai and peer out through the lush banana leaves. I'm always trying to face towards a sunlight cluster of leaves.
Paintings can be purchased from Floravita.
