These vivid orange petals glowing with sunlight in my greenhouse caught my attention (how could they not!). Even more delightful - there were mature seed pods and even a spray of buds. I snapped photos for reference but still tried to finish the painting while I could revisit the living blossoms. This 16 x 12" work shows this robust Clivia at close to life size. While detailed and botanically correct, it is warm and dramatic. "Clivia", is SOLD to a friend for her new bedroom in Minnesota, Thanks, Gloria!
