1628 Crinum Lily at Heathcote Botanical Gardens, plein air alla prima
I did this one yesterday at Heathcote, it was a really nice day, started out gray and turned sunny. The arbor is at the entrance of their rain forest, this is looking at the way out to the palm garden. I am very fond of crinum lilies, they have this amazing fragrance that makes me think of home whenever I smell it. My mother used to grow them and I have a few the yard.
The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas mounted on masonite.
