Cascading Camellias

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Near winter's end we are greeted with a gorgeous display of pink camellias blossoming in the yard.  Some of the first flowers of the year, it is always exciting to trek out into the cold morning air to pick a few for bud vases.  I love the soft, delicate color of these blooms and the tissue-like petals.  Truly a sign that spring is coming...

This mixed media painting was inspired by our pink camellias and also by the aqua and grey tones that are finding their way into the visual pallette now.  Silver and teal beads and metallic gold line work accent the piece.

Below are a few photos of our pink winter camellias....
