Botanical Diptychs

     The exotic plants that inhabit my Earthly Paradise are practically right in my neighborhood: Golden Gate Park!  The beautiful and poignant hues of unusual forms emit perfumes and nectars enticing not only birds and insects but captivate my interest as well. While painting on site, I found myself honing in on an excellent adventure of exploring the mystery and challenge of these shapes, textures, and forms while in the Arboretum and the Conservatory of Flowers.
