Bougainvillea

I've wanted to paint bougainvillea since I first saw them climbing over  garden wall in Tunisia, in 2000.  They grew in my garden in Riyadh too, and I always meant to paint them then, but never found the time.  Even after I started this painting, it took me forever to finish.  I began this in August, which probably makes this the longest-running project I've finished so far.
