90 paintings in 90 days, Day 15, Croton Leaves

       Croton Leaves

       The first time my sister visited Hawaii she collected handfuls of these wacky leaves and did a watercolor painting. I barely noticed them. It's like Canadians getting excited about geraniums, a plant nearly invisible to Californians. This morning my sister suggested I paint Croton leaves. I went to search the yard, not sure if there were any. They line the walkway to the house and I go by them everyday, only it took a Canadian in California to point them out. Thanks Mernie.  

15 days, only 75 to go
