Have you heard of this amazing flower, called the Queen of the Night? Epiphyllum oxypetalum rarely blooms (mine does it in July once a year!), and the blooms open at night and are spent by the morning. Every year, it is fun to look forward to this beautiful event! A patron of mine asked me to capture the evolution of this bloom from the baby blossoms to full bloom and the flower that is spent in the morning. Here is a series of four pieces that I am wrapping up this week. Acrylic paint on paper, 5x5 inches. What is blooming in your yard?
