This is a mixed media collage that I did in 1995. It is my favorite poinsettia painting and tho' it has been around for awhile, I still like the shapes, colors and unity of the piece. I thought I would include it as my abstract offering of the season. I wish everyone a peaceful holiday season.
Sometimes a painting sits inside my head, waiting for me to mentally put all the pieces together. That is how I feel about this transparent watercolor. I love to paint red pears because they are such a lovely winter fruit, so often a gift at Christmastime. I also love to work with white objects in my still life paintings because it is fun to see how much color I can use and still make white. This little painting was fun. I hope you like it too. Merry Christmas! Oh, the title is Holiday Treasures.
