These shrubs usually fade into the background. When they bloom all frothy white, you notice how glossy their green leaves are, and that there are sparks of red in there, too. They remind me of quiet people who don’t demand attention, but when you talk to them you realize how interesting they are.
This piece is painted in oil over a sealed watercolor background. The watercolor gives a feeling of atmosphere that oil alone does not.
