Opus 251, “Sun Grown”

One of my favorite cigar tobaccos are the Sun Grown wrappers from Ecuador. I used a beautiful leaf that came from that region to start this painting, and the addition of the colors came from one day to the other. It took me three weeks to complete the whole painting. I chose a black floater frame to highlight the colors.
