White Christmas

This painting belongs to my Amaryllis series. The white flower was particularly challenging. To add to the complication of painting “white” (nothing is truly white), I was working from a photograph in which I had desaturated everything except the flower…and I’m not sure even that was accurately representative of the light and color at play.

Happy New Year, everyone!
