The Yellow Swing, original oil painting, 16x20

We are in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina and I am very excited to see rhododendrons blooming everywhere. They are lush and gorgeous, and I have seldom ever gotten to see them because they don’t grow in Florida. There’s nothing like a front porch swing, and the pink rhododendrons make it even more inviting.

Jellyfish, Original Oil Painting Marine Life 5x7 Daily Painting

Jellyfish are so weird. The bell height and diameter can range from one millimeter to nearly two meters, depending upon the type of jellyfish. The tiny little box jellyfish is one of the most deadly, and practically invisible in the water. The lion's mane jellyfish has tentacles that can extend 36 meters! Surprisingly, the cosmopolitan hydrozoan jellyfish lives in fresh water. It is less than an inch in diameter, colorless, and doesn't sting. 

The jellyfish depicted above is the Pacific sea nettle.

But Cereusly, Original Oil Painting on Panel 8x8 Flower Art

I have called these flowers Dragonflower, Cereus, Night-Blooming Cereus, and I still am not sure of the proper name. I welcome any enlightenment anyone can give me. All I know is, it's very hard to catch it blooming, and I was happy to get a good picture of it.
