My best friend loves to paint watercolors.
She started learning about watercolors with the desire to
paint a bird of paradise and she has
made several beautiful images.
Now she has been eying Dahlias.
She has been looking for a good model to inspire her
so I have been grabbing shots of them
whenever I see them. I can't wait to see
the masterpiece she creates!
Apparently these are the National Flower of Mexico.
The mountains of Guatemala and Mexico are their ancestral home.
Must be a beautiful place!!
There are quite a few different kinds, this seems to be
some sort of "Cactus Dahlia"
