Description by the artist
Watercolor print dedicated to the generous and fragrant summer flowering of Plumeria, known as Pomelia but better known as Frangipani. In Palermo in the summer you can enjoy the spectacle of Plumeria in bloom, plants very common in the city that give flowers with a light and inebriating scent, originated from the tropical zones of Central America and of the Caribbean and well acclimatized to the Sicilian sun. The watercolor technique allows to capture reality in a fresh and extemporaneous way and is part of the story of a special journey in the Boranic Garden of Palermo through images in an illustrated narrative path that starts from the direct relationship of the places visited.
