Poinsettia 24"x24" oil $325

I am trying something different!  I was inspired by my sister Penny's flower paintings so I took pictures of my Christmas Poinsettia plants to work from.  Decided to make a very conscious effort look at the shapes and colors as flat areas of color with very little shading.  Also pushed the colors to make the shapes even more dramatic.  What happened is that instead of trying to reproduce an effect with paint,  i realized I was creating my own effect, shapes and colors!  I am going to do some more like this and push the colors even more--fun!
