December 21, Juanita Bellavance, Azalea Season is Back, From the 25 Days of Minis Portfolio, 2022, Acrylic on panel, 8 x 8 inches, Framed-9.5 x 9.5 inches
Azaleas light up my world in Spring. I ride through neighborhoods just to see all the azaleas in the yards. It's a celebratory feeling. I used to take my children to the Calloway Brothers Azalea Bowl with 4,000 azaleas in bloom at Calloway Gardens when they were growing up. We could ride through on the five-mile paved bike trail and be surrounded by luscious, abundant beauty. There were so many other great family activities there so the day was spent playing, swimming and seeing the butterfly Center. One year in July we even had my son's birthday party there.
This painting is a simple implication to evoke memories of azaleas in full bloom for azalea lovers!
