14" x 11"

When I see a red hibiscus I always want to pick it and put it behind my ear. That’s what I did when I first discovered them on a trip to Hawaii when I was in my early thirties. I have always loved the rich, intense color of their petals and how they invite you into their very centers. This is a good one to lose yourself in — I did, a lot, while I was painting it!


This original one of a kind pastel painting ships mounted on foamcore and wrapped in tracing paper to protect the pastel drawing. It arrives with a pre-cut white mat and self-adhesive spacers to mount on the back of the mat to keep it raised slightly from the painting surface itself, one technique recommended when framing a pastel (instructions are included). The matted painting will fit in a standard 20" x 16" frame to make it easy to frame. (Frame is not provided.)
