We were sitting on the porch eating our egg foo young brunch…and it was just beautiful…the profusion of weird flora in this neighborhood is mind boggling. What was even more so was the appearance of at least six jacaranda trees…that I have never seen before! And Bert hadn’t seen them either and he’s been living here for four years. It really made me yearn to paint some sliver of it all…so I did. I’ve painted this house across the way a dozen times…the sad thing is at one time I almost became the owner of it…and now that seems so far away…Oh well, it’s still great to look at and paint. I started with a green toned panel, which I felt I was fighting a bit…but I like it and I hope you do too.
