   While living in Hawaii for ten years, it somehow didn’t seem right to not paint a flower now and then.  Although the ability to identify most flowers by their proper name eludes me, and my lack of floristic  knowledge is often times manifested when for example, I paint rose leaves on a daisy, still, I like to paint flowers and will continue to do so, be they authentic reproductions or flowers that reside only in my mind’s eye.  In Hawaiian, the word pua means flower.  So even though I don’t know the proper name for this flower, I decided I could get by with the title Hawaiian Pua. If you travel to Hawaii in search of this rare, elusive flower, don’t be disappointed if you’re unable find it.  This particular species lives only in my imagination, but I painted it with the aloha spirit.

I believe all flowers are beautiful, whether real or imaginary.  The original 12″x16″ matted watercolor painting is available for purchase on my art website:  http://www.pamelaallegretto-franz.com

Giclee prints from greeting card size to poster size are available at:  http://pamela-allegretto.fineartamerica.com

Benchè mi elude l’abilità identificare i fiori coi nomi giusti, e si vede la mia mancanza della conoscenza floreale quando dipingo una margherita con le foglie d’una rosa, tuttavia, mi piace dipingere i fiori e li dipingerò ancora, se sono veri oppure fiori che vivono solamente nella mente.

Credo che tutt’i fiori sono bellissimi, se veri oppure immaginari.
