Angel's Trumpet

5" x 5" original watercolor

I don't think of my self as a "flower painter".
But Linda is always after me to walk through
the garden and see if I become inspired. I often
get hung up on the masses of color and green
instead of looking at each individual bloom.

This plant intrigues me. It blooms at night
and its poisonous. Linda has to watch it doesn't
take over the garden. It's other name is Datura.
I learned all this on our little morning stroll!
We had a little rain this morning and I saw
it was still open. I looked closer and there were
little drops of rain captured inside. I decided to
give the single blossom a try, but I had to add the
droplets of water.
