30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - DAY 13 - UNDER THE JACARANDA TREES


UNDER THE JACARANDA TREES
3.5" x 4.75"



Fine Quality Water Colours on French Watercolour Paper

This painting is an attempt to paint beautiful Jacaranda trees in bloom. In the southern hemisphere they put on a show in November and in the north I think it is May. I've only seen one Jacaranda in Canada, but I'm sure there are more.

When you stand under a blooming Jacaranda the large violet purple flowers give everything an unearthly bluish glow because there are no leaves at that time to modify the effect. It's a magical experience.

SHIPPING 16th MARCH 2016 OR LATER - SOME PAINTINGS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH FROM MY OUTLETS AS NOTED IN DESCRIPTION ON DAILY PAINTWORKS

My first sale at Kelowna Airport and I received a lovely note from a patron ...

Hello Sea,

"I was traveling through Kelowna last night and happened to see your painting "Alpine Meadow" a little 6x6 dated 2012, for sale at the airport. I simply could not leave without that picture! It draws me in so many ways I could look at it every day for years and years. It's like a lovely piece of poetry or a good book I need to keep so I can always read it over again. You live in a beautiful part of the world and to me, this little painting captures so much of it, and so many other wonderful landscapes I have visited and have yet to discover.




Thank you for including your biographical information and email address. It means a lot to me to be able to get in touch and let you know that piece has found a home where it will be cherished and enjoyed."
Best wishes,
Alicia
