Mill Series Continues

I have been working sporadically since moving into the studio and just finished another in the Mill series that I revisit periodically.  The island's two mills are very different in configuration but share certain shapes and themes of construction that have leant themselves to being merged in some of my studies.  This painting however is totally from the Rayonier mill (and my imagination).

Red Trumpet Flowers

Red Trumpets
8 x 8 Oil on Canvas  2017
Although I had planted the native red trumpet vine to feed the hummingbirds, this year it is playing host to a wide variety of bees.  You don't see them when you go to the plant until they buzz out of the trumpet and move on to another.  The flowers are full of nectar.
