Azalea Blooms!

Isn't this pretty?  My friend, Jennifer Fox Allen, and I got together for paint night.  She brought along a photo of an azalea.  She painted a beautiful rendition in oils. I borrowed the photo and did this one in watercolor. Turned out pretty good.  I like the dark contrasts from deep beneath the limbs on the bush while the background is somewhat out of focus.

5/09 Note: This piece was juried into the Mobile Art Association Spring Show and is hanging this month at the West Regional Library on Grelot Road along with some very impressive pieces and notable artists! Honored!


  1. That is stunning!! It really is gorgeous!

  2. Thank you again! I apologize for just now responding. Busy season with outdoor show preparation. The azalea took awhile to birth but by the grace of God it didn't go to the "I'll deal with this later" bin! I appreciate your comments!
