Madeleine’s Proteas in a Vase
I took my Mom out for tea at the lovely Madeleine’s Bakery at the Mushroom Farm in Hillcrest outside Durban. There were the most beautiful vases of flowers showcasing proteas on each of the tables. My Mom is frail and with COVID, I could not take her into the bakery so we had a socially distanced tea in the car park. I took photos of the flowers to show her, and decided to paint one of them, in memory of our visit there.
I love the loose style and vibrant background.
