Hana Hibiscus - 100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings 99/100

Hana Hibiscus - 100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings 99/100
6" x 6"  Oil

One morning on Maui I painted in a small orchard where there were also numerous flowers.  We all become familiar with our own environment.  My environment, Colorado, of course doesn't have tropical plants or flowers.  I loved all the hibiscus blooming everywhere...I didn't even know the name of this flower before this trip!

The orchard was on a volcanic hillside, thus the uphill slope!  It wasn't my photography!

I found a somewhat level spot for my easel.

After a morning painting we relaxed on the beach!  The beaches on the east side of 
Maui are black, volcanic sand.

A really beautiful floral. I love the free and soft brushstrokes and the color range. It looks effortless.
Maui is one terrifically beautiful place; I can tell you really enjoyed it.

We generally have two hibiscus "trees" each summer in planters. They grow abundantly here and are available in a variety of colors. Your painting is divine!
