Walking around the area where I live and photographing the lovely flowers that can be found, I took a lot of photos of bushes with these flowers. There where bushes with white flowers and bushes with blue/purple ones. I had no idea what they were called when I painted them, but thought I had to look them up. When I saw the name, I got an "aha" experience. It's a Hibiscus flower (Hibiscus Syriacus to be exact).
I tried to keep the painting simple, but still expressive, spontaneous and done with bold brush work.
