This spring, I bought several new rhododendron plants for my front and back yards. I took a lot of photos of them when they were in bloom, and painted this one recently.

And another great floral Michelle, I can't decide what part I like more, the colors of the flowers are tempting but those leaves are delicious!

Wow, Michelle! I envy you for painting this painting from your photos...but, I also envy you for being able to grow these! This is lovely! Here on the desert I am limited in reference photos!

Just beautiful!

Thanks, Teresa, Susan and Dawn.

Teresa, I was really happy with the leaves on this one - not usually my strong point.

Susan, you may not have rhodies, but don't you have all those beautiful flowering cacti?
