acrylic on canvas
Poinsettias always feel so festive to me!
I bought two this year from a school band fundraiser....let's see how long I can keep them alive.
I had hoped to do a few more poinsettia paintings this year, but I don't think it is going to happen...the holiday is sneaking up on me waaaaaaaay to quickly!
I really wrestled with this one - it took me much longer than usual. Maybe it was all the red - always a difficult color to work with. I'm going to touch up the canvas edges this weekend - and resist the urge to go back into the painting.
Lots of holiday preparations to be done in the next week - my shopping is almost done, I just started the Christmas cards tonight and I haven't even begun baking. Tomorrow - first on the agenda is the tree......
