This young Gardenia is another white flower oil painting as I experiment with painting white flowers. A touch of green background adds contrast. It is a Gardenia that graces my neighbor's yard.
Exotics and tropicals are, of course, easily found on our Island and all over Polynesia. I wonder if I will have time to put them all into oil paintings. Additionally, this painting is cropped into square format because the canvas was just off of totally square.
Gardenias are know to be tropicals, true exotics of Polynesia, and many people wait impatiently for the smell of one of these flowers when coming to Hawaii.
You'll find this image in both my Oil Paintings gallery and my Square Format gallery. Many people like to go directly to the perfectly square format, so i have a gallery just for them.
