A few years ago when we first moved to our house in Miami, we planted different colors of hibiscus all in a row. There were the yellow ones like the Hawaii State Flower. We also had the light and dark pink variety, even an orange one. When they were in bloom, usually at mid-day, they were spectacular! However, over the years, the only ones that remain are the common bright red and these deep pink magenta ones. The others have disappeared. This impressionistic painting was inspired by one of these lovely blooms.
