Amaryllis



I'm working on a painting of my amaryllis. I can't get a picture without a glare at the moment so this is the best I can do. It is coming out ok. I think I need to permanently ditch Max/Artisan oils. The color just isn't coming out right. My flower also died before I finished. Always a bummer.

I have a cousin named Amaryllis. Amy, for short. And she's a florist!

How funny! That's cool. Her parents must have liked plants and instilled it in her.

Pretty! The blue and red are nice together.

I am thinking about trading in my max oils too. They are too pastey and are ruining my brushes in a hurry. I may try real oils if I can handle the smell while I am pregnant, or I might opt for acrylics.
