Painting The Garden (fuchsias)
Time & Location
About the Event
What do a French monk, a Caribbean island and a famous German botanist have in common??? Believe it or not, it's the ornamental plant we know as the Fuchsia. It was first discovered by Charles Plumier, a French monk, on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, c1696. He named his beautiful newly discovered flower after the German botanist, Leonart Fuchs. And there is your history/botany lesson for the day! As a young girl, I loved imagining the flowers as tiny ballerinas, delicately hanging from their branches and dancing in the breeze. Join me as we paint these beauties in their vibrantly colored dresses and try to capture a bit of their ruffled charm.
