Beautyberry Bush 1

24 x 18" Watercolour on Masa paper on Canvas

I planted this shrub against white siding as seen from my studio door. In the spring it has tiny purple flowers, mostly hidden by much larger grey-green leaves. As fall arrives those leaves change into delicious pastel shades, the berries turn purple and stay all winter, long after the leaves have dropped. Here I have painted them larger than life to show off their beauty.
