"Late Bloomer" 24 x 24 Acrylic/canvas
This painting is of the night blooming cereus, a vining cactus found in various parts of the world. It is also the flower of the dragon fruit, or strawberry pear, which I discussed on May 19 on this blog. There are two places in particular in the Honolulu area where I take reference photos of these flowers every July when they are in bloom. They are quite large and showy flowers. This particular flower had hundreds of dew drops glistening on it, but I only painted a few dew drops to avoid over-working the painting.
