Datura, Summer 2011

I added the botanical name because I consider the painting in the vein of botanical illustration. The first try I thought the font was too large and disrupted the balance of the whole. The smaller font is what I settled on.

Dature, Another Point of View

Today the wind has blown a steady 20 mph, but the air is crisp and the sky clear. It is one of those days that the sailors love on Buzzards Bay when you can set the spinnaker and race. We are on alert for a category 2 hurricane, Irene, to hit Saturday or Sunday. That will be the end of the garden.
