Camelias in the garden

We put espaliered Camelias along the fence on guide wires at a previous house.  I took an element of  the Camelias on the wire and worked it up on the shaped canvas, using it as a field.

Why do I keep thinking of Omara Portunado of Beuna Vista Social Club singing Deux Camelias as I write this?
