After all these timed sketches, I wanted to go a little bigger. The pressure and focus of finishing a painting all in one go has been helpful. No time for smooshing. Last night I set a timer for an hour and got out an 8 by 10 board. It was fun.

This has a holiday feel to me. It’s the color, plus it reminds me of amaryillis, which seem to go with Christmas. Click the painting to see it in my etsy shop.
