Potted Plant 20"x24" $525

Well, I tried to push my colors a bit and that worked out pretty well.  Usually when I paint from a photo of say, a landscape; I can just refer to my photo if I hit a tough spot.  In these poinsettia paintings,  I am inventing the colors more and also the design.  For instance,  I found that the plant stems should look random but needed a stablizing element.  That is why I made those three largest leaves with a vertical orientation and then added the horizontal background lines to create a grid of sorts.
