Horizon Monarch was painted on a stretched box
These are often hung unframed, though this one has been
framed using a step frame inner to create an even space
between the frame and the canvas.
John waited three years for this Rhododendron to come
into flower, but the wait was well worth it when these
huge flowers appeared commencing red in bud then slowly
turning through pinks and orange to a pale yellow.
Catching the flower on camera in full sun allowed john
to create this flower painting at a later date.
