This painting began back in the 1950's, when a wise man who loved flowers, decided to plant a Camellia garden.
The last time we were looking to move, I told myself "I cannot live in a home that doesn't have at least one Camellia bush in the yard."
Our new home exceeded the minimum one-bush requirement. There is an entire garden which is overflowing with my favorite winter-blooming flowers. The Camellias begin to bloom in November and there are still a few bushes with flowers even today at the beginning of April.
I think it is safe to say that I will never grow tired of the Camellia. It is such a wonderful splash of beauty in the midst of winter.
I named this painting "Timeless" because of the classic style these flower emit. They are not flashy. Nor are not exotic.
Instead, these flowers bloom along, season after season, decade after decade with the same satisfying good looks with which they began.
