Pat Cross Painting Titled Hearty Caladium Sold at The Eggplant

SOLD ! At the Eggplant Boutique in the South Hills of Charleston!

The original oil painting by Pat Cross titled Hearty Caladium reached a new collector while visiting the Eggplant Boutique recently.

Pat Cross tells of her inspiration for the piece. "I captured the reference image for this oil painting during one of my coffee-cup garden tours with my mother," says Pat, adding. "Mom grew caladium in the dappled shade of the grand maple tree that thrived there. I recall how well my mother knew her nurtured plants and explained that, though not a bloom, the caladium offers a splash of color in the variegated leaves that are influenced by the light, soil nutrients and neighboring blooms. So, Pat Cross felt compelled to commemorate that discovery with this oil painting, Hearty Caladium.
