Sugar Maple
Watercolor on Masa Paper
15×10.5″, $125.0

There is a magnificent sugar maple in my backyard. Here it is with two hibiscus plants in big red pots flanking the path into my yard. These hibiscus plants are out on their summer vacation. They have done very well with lots of new foliage. They are only just now putting out some blossoms after the summer is nearly gone. I can only quote W. C. Fields. He would tramp around his rose garden saying, “Bloom you bastards! Bloom!”
