This watercolor needed some boost, so out came the pastels,
plus I can always trust pastels to give me the COLOR I need.

The source photo for this was taken by ME on my Guatemala painting trip
several years ago.  These tropical plants grew right outside the door at one 
of the buildings on a property we visited.

On the tunes carousel today:
RUSH (2 of 'em - one of my favorite bands)
Lionel Richie
Rascal Flatts
and one other, I forgot to write down
and can't think of it at the minute..
It also started with R.....

My fav flower! They grow here on Okinawa too! I love that they have every color of the rainbow! Great expression in these flowers you painted here. Interesting combination of watercolor and pastel.

That would be so cool - all that grows here is big sunflowers, wheat and corn and that's it! Ha! Thanks for stopping by, I will be to your blog this morning!
