Painting Give away for September

The winner of the painting give away for September is Thivia. she wrote:


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.

Thivia

Thank you for the kind words and Ihope you enjoy your painting. I have so much fun doing this give away.

Alaska's state flower is the alpine forget-me-not. It was chosen in 1949. The alpine forget-me-not is a perennial that grows 5 to 12 inches high in alpine meadows. The flowers have five connected salviform petals, colored sky blue, that are a quarter to a third of an inch wide. They have a white inner ring and a yellow center. The best time to see the alpine forget-me-not is midsummer, from late June to late July.

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.
