My dear friend Donna, who lives in Whiterock, B.C. sent me a beautiful picture of hostas to paint. I love how hostas have such a variety of color in them - and no two leaves are the same! This hosta (don't know the name of this one) has fabulous blues and greens in the leaves- which are set off perfectly by the brilliant pink flowers growing right beside them! I also enjoy how there is just one shaft of sunlight hitting a couple of leaves... she takes great pictures. She sent me several other photos as well, which will be in my line up of paintings this fall.
My husband and I am going to visit Donna soon. She and her husband just celebrated a "significant" birthday while we were in Mexico. We missed the big celebration, but this way we get to spend time with them all by ourselves. (Selfish, I know, but we always have a wonderful time with them.)
Donna is also an avid collector of art, but she has unfortunately run out of wall space! So... this painting is destined for someone else's wall. If you are interested in finding out more about purchasing this or any of my paintings, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
