Late Bloomer©2011 C.L.Burgess 6x6 oil on linen
gallery wrapMy first sale back in 2006 was a small red christmas cactus painting. That sale fortified my decision to keep posting my art and painting daily.
So, I thought that for my first giveaway and first post of 2011, it would be fitting to have a drawing for another christmas cactus painting. Flowers present a joyful challenge for painters who choose this subject. This one in particular is a flower that holds some fascination for me because it is so odd a form and delicate a bloom; the white ones especially. On this cold rainy day in January, it gave me pleasure to look at and paint, since it was a late bloomer on one of my plants. A pleasant gift for me and one that I hope will please the winner.
So, welcome to 2011, my new followers and old. Put your name in my hat for the drawing by commenting to this post by midnight January 5th. I will have my "recuperating husband"pick a name at random, then I will announce the winner on Little Christmas Jan 6th.
