Double hibiscus memory

a few months ago I posted the underpainting for this on the plant parade when we considered light and shadow--(I forget which month)-----finally finished it (I think). It's from a friend's magnificent double hibiscus bush that had to be cut down to make room for (municiple) sidewalk:
