Diane Mannion, Orange Hibiscus, 3.5x2.5"oil on linen SOLD
Picked this hibiscus at a friend's house while wandering around their garden before dinner. Checked out the chickens... they're laying eggs now! And the rooster's crowing, at least until any neighbors complain. The parrots were busy chewing new toys. Had a lovely evening! Got home early enough to paint the hibiscus before it wilted. They stay fresh one day whether or not they're put in water.
