Day 26 - Purple Althea

This is the one-hour version of a flower I did earlier this summer while the bush was in full-bloom. The plant is also called Rose-of-Sharon, but it's not a rose - it's in the Hibiscus family!  I really liked the drama of this particular flower, as it was being back-lit by the morning sun.
