Mystery Flower

12" by 12" original acrylic painting on stretched canvas, with 3/4 inch edge unframed.

Friends were about to come over to eat so I dashed out to the yard for flowers to put on the table. I was so surprised to find this exotic flower in the back, don't even know what kind it is. We've been here 3 years now and it had never bloomed before. It may be an amarylis planted before we moved in, though I didn't know they could survive winter. Anyway I loved the structure and color of it so decided to try my hand painting it. SOLD

Polly, I am one of your husband's students and I have been enjoying your Etsy site for a while. I love the simple objects you use to bring forth such rich texture and color. I also really like the collage element I've seen you incorporate. So, I found this link from Etsy, and thought, since I spent some time on here, that I should at least say hi. I look forward to coming back!
