While on our trip this summer, we camped in a narrow, red canyon in southern Utah, which was heaven to me. To make it even better, there were several moonflower plants, also known as deadly nightshade, jimson weed or datura, growing there. Georgia O’Keeffe painted several fabulous oils of the blossoms and I immediately knew I would be painting some, too. How could anyone resist? For a plant so poisonous, it’s certainly a beauty. Hopefully this little painting will be too.
Thanks for stopping by! Alice
