Hibiscus - Pink Flowers - Thank you Rupa Dee

9" x 12"

Arches 140#CP


My thanks to my friend Rupa Dee ( whose beautiful photograph of hibiscus inspired this painting. THANK YOU Rupa!! Please take a moment to view her incredible works!


I began this painting at home, worked on it a bit as we drove to the coast, and a bit while we were vacationing. My own hibiscus are in bloom as well, but I fell in love with Rupa's wonderful capture .... thank you again!


We are in the second week of classes here at the college. I walked across the campus to the main building yesterday and almost had to elbow my way through the masses of people! Like most other colleges during this time of economic uncertainty, our classes are overflowing with folks trying to reeducate themselves for whatever jobs are available as well as those preparing for their future. The quiet days on campus are officially over!


But, we're still voting for the orchard. With nine days remaining in the entire four-month competition, we must keep voting daily to remain in the last five places ... Thank you again for your support!
