The painting was inspired by the riot of color in my gardens. Daylilies, roses, peonies and a wonderful dusky green mullein (verbascum) plant just beginning to bloom.
Tropic of Capricorn. Acrylic on canvas panel, 9″ x 12″ 2010.
This painting is both an homage to Henry Miller’s book of the same title, and to summer. The long, hot summer.
