This  painting was quite the challenge! It took several sessions to complete. When there is a considerable amount of white and black in a painting such as this, I have to wait a couple of days between sessions for each of these slow drying colors to set enough to paint over or into them.

Did you know the hibiscus flower can universally mean that it is a nice summer? In Europe, during the Victorian era and up to today, the meaning of the hibiscus flower is "delicate beauty." It is the state flower of Hawaii and generally given to visiting state officials. It's symbolizes Old Royalty and is a flower that brings power and respect. In Japan, it's meaning is "gentle."

Today's Quotation: "The secret to being a bore is to tell everything."
