Thai fruit tree flower -- Chom-Pu

This is a bit of a challenge for me in oil pastel, which is not the medium I am most familiar with. This is about 10.5x15 inch, done in 1.5 hours. It is too bad that this tree may bloom only 3 days of the year. I was glad I get to capture its opera color in full bloom and get to paint this.

These blossoms look like a little bit of fireworks on the tree. Nicely painted!!! I'm glad you got a little break away from art and spent some time with Tone biking. I love the pictures you've shared below and the little bits about the traditional Thai life. Thanks.

Ai, you pictures for WC are just beautiful. I recognize this one, I was amazed with the blooms on this tree. You did a great job, I can't believe you don't think you are good at oil pastels, this is wonderful! Beautiful, beautiful!
