Elephant Ears watercolor



I had fun painting this watercolor--- thinking about the bright light that surrounded them.

I saw these beautiful plants in South Carolina-- while touring with my friend Renea.

They jumped out at me!

The sun was low in the sky.  The sunlight was striking the leaves in a special way! The leaves appeared to glow!  So lovely.

So... I titled the piece simply "Light".
