The Christmas Poinsettia


We were invited for dinner to a friend's place yesterday.I had spoken to her many times on the phone, but it was the first time I was meeting her.It is strange that you get used to a voice and suddenly you have to associate a physical figure with it. She had a lovely home and some lovely poinsettia plants.When we were leaving, she gifted me one.
It looked so beautiful that I felt compelled to paint it.I made this painting this morning.The Christmas poinsettia.I love the red and the green next to each other.The contrast is striking, though I'm not sure that I managed to capture it!
But the important thing is that it gave me so much joy.
