Rose of Sharon by Sheri Jones

Rose of Sharon by Sheri Jones
14x7 oil on canvas
The Rose of Sharon is from the hibiscus family and also know as Althea. It grows in a bush form and I have them all over my yard.  I painted this plein air and alla prima.  The weather was picture perfect with temperatures in the 70's.  It was great to be outside and in my garden on such a beautiful day. 
This is available for purchase. $150.00

Very pretty, I used to have some of these at my old house and always enjoyed when they bloomed.
