Monarch Rhododendron blossom

Our huge Monarch rhody is starting to develop healthy large buds. The blossoms will soon get larger and open up forming beautiful crowns on long stems.

  1. Hi, Lois! I didn’t know you had started a new blog, that is, till this morning, when I found the same floral painting of your Monarch Buds on your older blog. Good luck with your new blog. It will work out: step-by-step.
    I wish you and your daughter happy Mother’s Day celebrations.


  2. Paula: My name is Lois Mathews; I live on Whidbey Island, Washington, USA. I have another blog: SceneonWhidbey through Google and decided to show my artwork through another internet blog source since I am not pleased with some of Google’s practices. I have been following your blog for sometime and enjoy your art history info and your paintings of flowers. I was not aware that you belong to WordPress; I’m still in the process of trying to figure how to use each of these blogs to display my art….very complicated.

    The Monarch buds are in full bloom since I sketched the large bud. The sketch was done as a Mother’s Day card for my daughter who is a single mother with three young children. She needs to celebrate her gifts.
