Blooming Tuesday - Amaryllis

My Sister sent me some pictures of her amaryllis that is blooming. I thought it a perfect subject for Blooming Tuesday. I love seeing this marvelous hot color on a cold snowy day. Happy Blooming Tuesday everyone. I hope this brings some warmth and color into your day.

Thanks Gail.

Cris it is a watercolor. The color of the amaryllis is what made me want to paint it.

Lynn, yes, I painted it from a photo. My Sister sent me photos of her amaryllis that is blooming right now.

Lisa, such a strong image. I love it. Amaryllis are very welcome at this time of year, when the garden is still sleeping.

Great job! I especially like how you did the flower - I can see some real depth here. I'm not good at flowers but still strive to conquer!
