Begonia Boots



7 x 10 inches, watercolor and gouache, 2009.

I'm not quite sure what I do to wellington boots to ruin them so quickly but I am now onto my third pair in two years. The question was what to do with the old pairs that were sitting in the porch looking very sorry for themselves. I decided to use them as plant pots and chose some trailing begonias to brighten them up.

I totally agree with Erika - this one would be a keeper, for me! What a great combination of colors - the blue, the green....great combinations!
