Title: “Trumpet Vine” / Acrylic on Canvas

This trumpet vine blooms near my swimming pool.  The day I saw these flowers, I loved the contrast of the hot red trumpets against the intense turquoise of the pool water.  I planted the original vine nearly twenty years ago to attract hummingbirds.  That original vine has since become  as thick as my forearm and has spawned countless vines all around my yard.  These flowers are from one of the spawns.  This painting is from a series of small paintings that I completed in the summer and early autumn of 2014.  (Painted 2014)
