Amaryllis {Bountiful Observations no. 5}

Amaryllis

{8" x 8" (20.3 x 20.3 cm) – oil on canvas panel}
Framed painting: $300.00 + S&H

This beautiful bloom is from an amaryllis bulb I purchased in November, back in December it gave me two of the most spectacular blooms I have ever owned, so luscious that I just wanted to look at them and savour them untouched... After the blooms faded I resolved to replenish this bulb so it would bloom again next year, so I have been watering and tending to the bulb, when low and behold it gave me a third bloom!

This bloom was just as spectacular as the first two and I knew I needed to share it with you as a painting.

With this composition I aimed to share the excitement and joy I experienced every time I would look at this amaryllis, an unexpected, but very appreciated gift of life!


{14" x 14" (35.6 x 35.6 cm) with frame}
