Pointsettias. 6x8, oil

It so nice to be painting flowers again! Last spring, summer and into the fall I concentrated my daily paintings on a theme: A Flower a Day. You can see that series at my website. I love painting flowers, their colors and natural forms give me lots of room to be expressive and to take a more interpretive approach. While pointsettias are a Christmas flower for us they really are a more tropical flower and I hope some of that warm weather and exotic tropical feel comes through in the saturated reds and pinks in this piece. Enjoy!
