Red Hibiscus (Private Collection)
Acrylic on Canvas,24 x 30,This piece was one of my most challenging & rewarding paintings. I painted this a couple of years ago, a milestone for me because I'd never attempted a painting this size. I have since done many even larger. This Abstract Floral, was kind of like magic for me though. I painted this from imagination without a reference, just pushing paint around on the canvas, carving out this large hibiscus and surrounding foliage. When it was finished I stood back and smiled!
