When I do my oil paintings, I tend to do them large. Like this Hibiscus flower. This is a 30 x 36″ original painted from a photo that I took at the Biltmore mansion in NC when I went to visit my sister. One of my absolute favorite places to go to (besides seeing my sister and nieces whom I adore), the flowers and foliage is ever-changing there. This painting is one of my favorites that I have done. I even like the shadow of the stamen that’s being cast on the petal.
