'Amaryllis in Bloom'

'Amaryllis in Bloom'
oil on board
8" x 8"
This is my beautiful Amaryllis which is in it's third year of flowering! This year I decided to paint it. The blooms are huge and I wanted to do them justice so I filled the canvas with the image in order to portray the 'hugeness'. This resulted in the scale of the flower head being slightly larger than life. I made the painting at the time of flowering and put the finishing touches to it this afternoon.
