DescriptionMorning Glories are part of a family of herbs, shrubs, and small trees (many of them climbing forms) inhabiting warm regions, especially the tropics of America and Asia. They are herbaceous vines of abundant growth and with colorful funnel-shaped blossoms that open in the morning.This vividly stylized, neon bright version of the beautiful, heart-shaped leaf allows the artist to present the commonplace in an extra-ordinary way. The selected presentation is on Fine Art Pearl paper, with Arqadia Gold, beaded wood frame. The mats are Garnet over Roccoco Cream. The Glass is Non Glare.
