Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon – I snapped a bunch of photos of our Rose of Sharon tree and its blossoms last summer. With spring finally arriving, it seemed like a good time to revisit the photos for my reference. There was a real give and take on incorporating the pattern of the fabric, relying on it heavily in some places while covering it complete in others. I believe it makes for a fun viewing from both far away and up close as the pattern and textures become more apparent.

This painting measures 11″x14″ and is acrylic paint on stretched upholstery fabric.
