When the Bougainvillea is in bloom it is a sight to behold.This is a scene that I painted on a path near Pelican bay that meanders through a small park. With the late afternoon sun hitting the foliage, I knew this is where I had to stop and paint.This painting comes with a custom 12" x 9" frame as appears in the photo. It's a frame that I acquired a few years back that has an interesting Gothic shape. I cut some panels to insert into the frame and glued Claessens linen canvas to them and primed with oil. I had one of these stashed in my plein air pack for a moment just like this.
