"Strobilanthes in autumn" Kim Rempel - SOLD

I know...it's a mouthful. But I thought I'd give the proper plant name. The leaves are so striking. This is an annual (where I live) that I planted in spring and it's just beginning to fade. Love the purple.
This past weekend I was camping in New York and went to the Corning Museum of Glass. Have any of you been there? Wow! What gorgeous work. Glass-blowing demos were offered and it was fascinating to see a vase appear in minutes from a blob of hot glowing glass. It's something I'd love to try. Wishing everyone a good week ahead ; )

Oh, yes, I know that plant. Didn't know the name, though. Here in Texas I grow coleus as an annual. It also has beautiful leaf colors. Right at the end of the season, it puts out a spike of small blue flowers.

Love the purples against your bright greens!

The Corning Museum is wonderful! Our school growing up used to take trips there; especially when we had exchange students visiting. What a neat place. I love your painting and think it's great that you used the full name!

That is so gorgeous Kim. I love how you arranged the leaves and the great colors, and your brushstrokes. It's beautiful!

I hope you have a good week too!

Beautiful. Love these colors together. Aubergine almost. Clearly I didn't spell it correctly.

This makes a very compelling pattern. It's interesting to see the thumbnails come up on the links; I can often tell right away whether or not I'm attracted to a painting. This one leaped out at me.
