Wishing everyone out there in cyber-space, all the best for the holidays, as well as a happy, prosperous New Year, filled with much joy, laughter, and of course, an abundant garden!

A Happy New Year and Best Wishes Karen, to You and Yours. Your painting 'Pointsettia' is quite stunning! I wish I had seen it in person.

Jim, thank you! Wishing you and your's a very Happy New Year. Hope you're enjoying the holidays, and that your garden grows most abundantly this coming season!

I appreciate your comment on the painting.
Thank you. My apologies for the quality of the picture. It's a scanned photograph from a 35 mm camera, from back in the day before I had a digital one!
The painting now resides in London, UK. They travel more than I do, that's for sure! : )

Happy Holidays Karen!!

Once again - an incredible photo; sure would look fantastic enlarged <11'x14'?> and framed (just saying!). Your artwork is always striking - the owners of your Poinsettia have great taste! --Shyrlene

Beautiful bloom! Is this the same 120 year old amaryllis that you pictured before? Also love the color in the Poinsettia painting. Happy New Year!

Shyrlene, I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday! So glad you like the painting. Thank you! (It's now in the U.K.)

Helen, thank you! Yes, it's from the same plant. My Uncle, divided and shared a few bulbs for me from the main one, which you see here, a few years before he died. Then when he passed away, I inherited the main one. Now they're together, and bloom at different times of the year.
Happy New Year, and all the best to you!

Tim, thank you very much! I appreciate your comment and visit! Happy New Year to you.

Thanks so much, Red! Yes, it's the very same.
Very kind of you to comment on the painting, too. One of my favourite florals I've ever done. It now resides in London, U.K.
Happy New Year!
