Pink Azaleas and Pearls

24" x 18" - Oil
These azaleas grow profusely in my yard. They are a lovely fuchsia/pink color, growling on a bush taller than me!  I snipped off this piece and stuck it in an old wine carafe.   I gathered some personal items for this painting for a feminine feel – my cupid mirror, a gift from a dear friend Sandra, a dainty teacup and saucer that had belonged to a favorite cousin Weesie, a pearl necklace I found in an old jewelry box deep in my dresser drawer.  It's now on exhibit at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery in Charleston.  It's also seen on my Etsy site.
