"Wisteria House" (watercolor on paper; 20" x 14") sold
The white manor house at George Washington's River Farm in Alexandria, VA gets draped with purple wisteria flowers every spring. It is a sight to look forward to, and I rarely miss it. I once painted wisterias on a red-brick house. Boy, the painting looked ugly. Wisterias and a white house are like hydrangeas and a white picket fence. They enhance each other, making the charm of the flowers and backdrops multiply by many times!
