I have a white Plumeria in my yard which is where I got my inspiration for this painting. When I first moved here I did not know that this tree was deciduous, so I was sad when it lost its leaves. I wondered if I neglected it and it died. But then I noticed other Plumeria trees in the neighborhood looked like mine. When leaves began to sprout and flowers bloomed once again I was not only relieved to see the tree live, but I was also grateful to be blessed with its beauty and fragrance once again.
