Late Spring

There is a Rhododendron bush in my yard that is nearing the end of its life cycle. Every year another branch or two will die back, leaving it looking a bit less robust than a younger plant. The remaining live parts of it, however, still produce a nice crop of brilliantly colored blossoms in the spring. This is a fast sketch in gouache that I made to try to capture the lively energy that the remaining plant still has.
