This painting now lives with my son in Oregon. I am waiting for the camassias to come up in the garden again to see if I want to paint these wonderful flowers again. Giclees (archival pigment prints) available.  

Asa’s flowers

Posted by & filed under Flowers.

My neighbor Asa celebrated his 90th birthday at a restaurant and this was one of the table decorations.  A lovely man, who is no longer with us, but I can remember him this way.  The variety and vibrancy reflect an incredible man, Asa Hanamoto.
