Day 16

Mission:  30 paintings in 30 days
Focus:  Watercolor with pen and ink on Italian-made Fabriano 140# paper.

ANGEL's TRUMPETS have intrigued me ever since I moved to the South.  They seem so other-worldly for some reason.  I'd lovingly add them to my garden except for the fact that parts of them (allegedly) are poisonous for pets and children alike!  How could something so beautiful be toxic?!

My Day 16 painting is based on Angel's Trumpets that I found at MAGNOLIA PLANTATION & GARDENS in CHARLESTON, SC.  This one was fun!
