Red Oregon Holly leaves (ilex Aquifolium) in the rain. This native to northwestern North America, Mahonia repens (creeping Mahonia) is a low growing evergreen shrub with a multi-season interest. In spring has glossy green leaves and clusters of bright yellow flowers which in autumn turn into blue-purple berries. The holly like leaves become red, and rusty in the winter, a very decorative plant. I saw it growing in front of a wall in Washington in a rainy October day and I liked bright red color of the leaves with water drops on them and small blue berries around. I took made my photograph with the iPhone and made it as a watercolor image in digital media.
