Backus Gallery and Museum, 500 North Indian River Drive, Ft. Pierce, Fl.

SOLD The title refers to the lavender flowered plant, it starts out purple, turns lavender and then white so it has all three colors on one plant. Its very striking. The orange flowers are heliconias and the yellow flowers in the back are bellardias. I got myself into trouble, I found this interesting plant site while checking out my spelling and ordered a whole bunch of cool sounding seeds! Merry Christmas to me!

I ordered a heliconia mix, passionflowers, orchid tree seeds and some other stuff.

I painted this today with my group, the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast. It was a perfect day out. Its 5 x 7 oil,
