4"x6" oil on door skin. It is camellia blooming season. There are many varieties of this beautiful flower. The official botanical name for this specific variety translates to "Leaning Over My Neighbor's Fence". It is a rare variety that only grows along our property line. I don't think I was channeling the ghost of Manet on this one. The specter is more likely the ghost of "What the heck were you thinking?!?!" In still life painting circles this spirit is more commonly referred to as Chardin.
