|"Balboa Park Begonia"|
20" x 16"
Oil on wrapped canvas
I saw her from a distance in the Balboa Park Conservatory in San Diego. At first glance I was attracted to her translucent petals. But by the time I got close to her the light had changed, and the leaves became almost more stunning than her bloom.
Here we are again with my favorite palette of colors—red and green. I seem to be attracted to this combination, and in this case, the black background served me well. I had left it white, but it was less than stellar.
This and most of the paintings you see on my blog are shown on Daily Paintworks
. They are also available for sale through their auction.
Thank you for visiting today.
