Croton Petra

Waking early to walk out and have my hot tea by the pool, I was drawn to the brilliant color in the foliage of this tropical plant!  I've never seen these growing in the earth before - and it's size and color were dazzling!  So, I set up my easel with my hot tea at my side, and started laying down thick paint to define those fabulous leaves!  I really do love applying that thick, juicy paint - it is very satisfying indeed!  What better way to start my day?  Painting number 2614 in 2614 days.
