I love these flower; Camellias. They are so delicate looking, yet grow in the harshest conditions of mid-winter (well, harsh by South Carolina's standards). A couple foolish little blooms have shown their faces a little bit too early, so I captured their short lives in paint as quickly. I know there is no snow yet, and won't be for a while (if ever around here!) But I'm calling this little painting "Snow Flowers" as a tribute to this winter bloom. This painting is 5x7 and can be found in my shop for a steal! I think this would be a fantastic Christmas gift for that hard-to-by-for, super-classy person.
This is one of the last oil paintings I'll be doing for a while (that makes me very sad!) My husband, baby, and I are moving out of our home in a couple weeks, and I want to make sure that all the paintings I do will be dry in time. Watercolors, acrylics, and pen-ink washes to come as well as many, many Christmas cards as I continue to launch my new line! Check out BeautifulHello!
