We used to have bouganvillea in our yard in Florida and California, too. In California we had both this hot pink variety and a coral colored variety! These colors in bright sunlight make me feel so good! Hummingbirds love them, too!
I’m channeling the Florida days of my childhood, and remembering all the beautiful warmth of this place…central Florida, brilliant sun that fades and sun-bleaches all the brilliant turquoise, peach and lime green colors to a soft fade. Warm to my bones, hot enough to swim in cool water. So I bring these to my winters up here. It’s my beautiful survival method until I can return and soak up the warmth again. It’s where I spent all my growing up years, and on into college and young adult life.
This is one from my Florida inspired series of paintings. I can’t wait for you to enjoy this in your home!
