Sometimes we don’t need to go very far to find a subject to paint. This is the view directly out the back door of my studio looking at the Bougainvillea in full bloom. Sarah planted three gallon pots of these nine years ago and two of them became well rooted and flourished. Hummingbirds are fond of the color and the flowers last for a long time giving us a bright magenta color all summer.
