“Pink Passion Flower”
original passion flower painting

The passion flower is one of my favorite flowers. I love the intricate detail in their design, the fanciful fringe of filament, and the swirl of tendrils growing from the vine. They attract butterflies and add a pop of color in the heat of summer.
This passion flower painting was inspired by the vine growing in our garden. It climbs higher, and has more flowers every year. The blooms vary from pink-purple to deep violet. A swirling vine forms mesmerizing spirals, and I find myself going outside just to see if any new buds have opened.
