Mason Jar and Blackeyed Susans

Mass-produced glass canning jars, also known as Mason jars after their inventor John L. Mason, Ball jars after one of the earliest manufacturers of the jars, and fruit jars because they were used to store fruit, have been manufactured since the early 1850s.[1] An earlier British jar is known as the Kilner jar. Mason jars are made of soda-lime glass, and come in a variety of sizes including quart, pint, half-gallon, and cup sizes, as well as in wide-mouth and regular mouth shapes.
This Mason Jar is filled with black eyed susans.
The painting is a watercolor and is 12x9 on 140 lb watercolor paper.

Dear Delilah,
I am a writer and would love to have that feather painting of yours! To me, it represents all that the pen can achieve: creativity, intelligence, love, power, and more love! My boyfriend and me are in a long distance relationship and in today's world when everything is so digitalized and fast-paced, I still take the time to write him love letters and that's exactly what your painting of that feather is to me. It means so much more than just a feather.
It is absolutely stunning! I am such a fan of your work. There is not a day that passes that I don't stop by your blog to watch your creations. It's inspiring how you churn so many paintings so fast! I've been stuck on a watercolor painting for over 2 weeks now. I wish I had the perseverance you have! Anyway, congratulations on your gorgeous pieces! It's a pleasure to visit your site.

Camellia (click here to bid)

Camellia
State Flower of Alabama

The Camellia produces flowers up to 5 in (12.7 cm) wide with yellow centers and rounded overlapping petals, much like a rose. The flowers are prized, but so are the glossy leaves that stay a deep, shiny green all year. It is a slow grower, but eventually will reach up to 20 ft (6.1 m) tall. Camellias flower from late winter to early spring. Over 3,000 varieties, cultivars and hybrids of Camellia state flower is the only symbol not native to Alabama. It's from Asia. Camellias are named for G.J. Kamel, a Jesuit priest who traveled in Asia in the seventeenth century. The introduction of Camellia japonica L. in Italy is dated about 1760, but only during the XIXth century this species became popular. Many Italian nurserymen started growing Camellias at that time and soon this business became of remarkable importance. In two areas, the Lucchesia (Tuscany) and the lake Maggiore zone, camellia production was famous, due to the local nurserymen, breeders, and collectors. In these areas camellias were grown in a great number of gardens and still today it is possible to find old specimens.
