Object Detail

Watercolour painting on rectangular sheet of brown paper, with a brown window mount, and backing. The painting is a botanical illustration of part of a plant with flowers, thought to be New Zealand Mistletoe. One branching brown stem is depicted, with alternate leaves. The green leaf blades are oval-shaped, with smooth margins. Interspersed between the leaves in the upper half of the plant are long closed, tube-like red flowers with yellow-orange tips. Some flowers are open and have long slender petals curling open from half-way up the tube. There are leaves and flowers depicted in a wash of browns and reds.

The painting is marked “NiNA JONES.”
