While visiting my aunt’s place in Old Naples last year, I was amazed at the sight of a single pink hibiscus bloom stretched atop its flowering tree, reaching skyward. I snapped a photo of the wide-open blossom and instantly fell in love with the optimistic composition.
The texture of the vibrant hibiscus petals appeared like crepe paper as they opened to the sky. Flecked with pollen, these petals displayed themselves cheerfully flowing through the air and seemed to dance gracefully in the breeze of the tropical warm Naples day. Original painting “Skyward” is 30″ x 40″ oil on linen.
