A Bright Poinsettia.
I so enjoyed painting this bright and happy poinsettia recently.
(And it’s nice to think bright and happy thoughts with all the dark and sad news of the past few days.)
Using my dagger brush (which I need to use more often), it was fun to just let this painting evolve and happen on the paper. The dagger brush is “floppy” and loose, yet also allows for wonderful control changing wide strokes to points.
I’m really pleased with how it turned out! It actually makes me smile to look at.
I’m also thrilled that my new printer is able to produce gorgeous 11×14 prints that look so much like the original, so this option will be added to my paintings in our McKinneyX2Designs Etsy shop. I also added this design to the Society6 shop, so it can be made into pillows and mugs and other fun stuff.
Wishing you a bright and happy day!
Cheers & Hugs,
PS Only 55 days until Christmas 😉 and only 2 1/2 weeks until the big Mars Craft Show (Saturday, 11/17/18) AND Christmas in the Woods at Berry Vine Gifts (11/16-18/18)
