Southern Crepes

It seems everywhere I look there are crepe myrtles in bloom. We have had much hot weather and several thunderstorms of late and I suppose that has brought about even more blooms than usual. I wanted to try to capture the essence of these plants and came up with this off center composition.
This is painted on a 28x22 canvas wrap.


  1. Hello friend. Beautiful painting! Hope to see you soon. MBAA meeting in Aug.??

  2. You have captured so well the beauty of the crepe myrtle, David. I agree that the excessive heat has allowed them to bloom longer this summer. We have them lining our driveway. They are beautiful trees, although they do make a mess. I love your title!
