Hibiscus, 2015, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 7"x 5"
I love their trumpet shape of hibiscus and the wonderful combinations of color in the multiple varieties. They are perfect to tuck a bloom behind your ear when you are feeling tropical or to enjoy in a petite vase on your dressing table for morning ablutions. This one is from a plant in my back yard. I've added the background--and if I am patient, will have more greenery surrounding my small plant in the future.
Alas, the blooms are fleeting, lasting only a day.
