"lush" .....

24" x 36" oil on canvas

Just finished this today.  The pink camellias in my front yard are as big as salad plates and when the morning sun hits them, they just glow.  I wanted to play up the swirl of petals and light with my brushstrokes.  Its all about the movement and pattern and color. I love the looseness of it.  Not to mention that the color scheme in this painting is very appropriate for this time of year.  Speaking of which, I would like to wish you the happiest of holidays and thank you for supporting my art this year.  Your encouragement and support are the best gifts I could ever receive! Peace and joy to you and yours!

Beautiful colors in this Camellia...Too cold here in N.Y. for any flowers so I'll have to enjoy your paintings!! It's been a pleasure following your work, Dottie, and look forward to seeing more in 2013! Happy Holidays!
