- Bold contemporary strokes of alizarin crimson and quinacridone -rose are some of this artist favorite shades. Fluid strokes detail this sturdy plant. If you shop for fine expensive shampoos you will see this ingrediant. It grows under shrubs in shadowed places. We lived in Haiku, where once a year they would all suddenly be in bloom! A sea of pinks and reds would become a blanket under the trees, and the smell was amazing, like a sweet citrus but more hearty, unforgetable. Squeeze the blossom and a gelatonus fluid bubbles out from the fisures. With now wet hands warm the fluid by rubbing hands together and stroke into hair, it transforms hair instantly. This painting returns me to Haiku.
