It has been a happy time in the studio as of late. Our gardens are in bloom and I have so many flowers to paint this time of year! Here is one of my favorite blooms from the lush vines that cover our fence. I love the intoxicating scent of jasmine and the luminescent white of the petals on this lovely flower. It's beauty in the evening inspired the above painting, Indigo Jasmine, showing the blossoms surrounded by deep blue and accented with coral and terracotta.
