Day 34

The Last Poinsettia
Oil on Canvas
5 x 7
Yup, as the title suggests this is my last poinsettia painting -
for the moment. I can't promise those luscious reds won't draw
me in again, but I'm off to other things right now.
Every year I'm reminded of the poinsettias I saw in Mexico. After
I graduated from college I lived in Morelia, Mexico for three months
studying Spanish. I stayed with a wonderful family in
a very nice home. From my second story room I remember
my shock looking out the window to see poinsettias at eye level
with me in the neighbor's yard. Who knew those modest grocery store
plants could grow 13 to 15 feet tall? Gosh, they were spectacular.
