Azaleas





13"x17" Transparent Watercolor
Arches 300lb cold press, M. Graham Paints

When I was a child I would sit under the azalea bushes in my Grandaddy's yard,
it was like sitting under a colorful summer umbrella. I think that is why I am drawn
to this perspective of flowers... a child's view maybe.

I "gifted" this watercolor to my sister:)
