# 19 Blue Flowers

These grow in my veranda 'garden'!!!! Its monsoon time and so many things are beginning to bloom. I got this plant in Assam, and it has traveled with me to Kolkata! The flowers are so beautiful and quite unique as they grow out of the leaves! Unfortunately they only stay in bloom for a day!
This was painted in my journal, and I wish I had left the background white...I tried putting in the impression of the leaves that were surrounding the flowers...and now I feel the background is a little too overpowering and the flowers are getting lost!

One day to catch and document the bloom?!! That's tough. I agree the background is a little heavy; however, it is not easy to paint white flowers on the light background. I love the details on flowers. Great Job Brinda!Thanks, Irina

They are like cactus flowers only lasting a day. Very pretty.
