Idaho Flowers

watercolor on paper 9x13 inches
I painted this from a photo reference taken while visiting our son and his family in Meridian, Idaho last summer. You would think these are hibiscus, but not in Idaho of course. I don't know what they are, but the bush was bigger than me and just covered with these spectacular blooms. The painting is much more vibrant than this photo. I need to get better at shooting and editing my photos! Suggestions, anyone?

  1. I'm pretty sure these are Rose of Sharon flowers (Hibiscus syriacus). It's Korea's national flower.

    Just found your blog. I like your paintings of flowers in jars/vases. Also your watercolors.
