SOC4: week 6

Oh so sad…this is it…The Summer of Color is finished. Thank you, Kristen, for once again bringing us this great summer challenge.

Behold our last set of colors….IMG_0039Raspberry & Tangerine with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Lemon

I immediately thought of a hibiscus. 1hibiscusflowerphotocredit

My drawing skills aren’t the best but I think given the size and shape this is a pretty good interpretation of one.soc4w6The raspberry color is more pronounced in person…also could be the strong morning sun throwing it off a bit.

I love it…a nice tropical flower on a cool July day in Minnesota.
