African Violets in Mexican Bowl
I've been fascinated by these white African violets blooming for the past several weeks. I took them into the studio, placed them in a small ceramic bowl on the stool in the afternoon light and surrendered myself to them with a palette full of colors some of which were half dried and left from my last piece.
