Christmas Card

I painted this from a poinsietta plant that I had from last year . Sitting in a pot all year looking kind of puny but a few weeks ago it started to turn that red color.  If your wondering how I got those little indents, I used a pointy bamboo pen, scratched them in after laying in the wash.  
I've posted it to the art forum I belong to over at JWJarts as my contribution to the Christmas season.  BJ

  5. It is so beautiful, BJ! I love the script too. But then I have always loved your artwork and I still have my 2 cardinals on my wall in my studio that you did a couple of years ago.

  6. A lovely wee Christmas card Barbra. It is great to visit and see what you are up to. So nice to see you creating. Thanks so much for your visit. It made me happy to see your name there and to read your comments.
    I was amazed you could keep a Poinsettia for a year! We get them here for Christmas but usually last only till the end of Dec. Or it might just be me and my black thumb. :( Have a wonderful Christmas.

  7. Hi Barbra. You may have two comments from me as i made one and it disappeared! I love this card. Beautifully done Barbra. Thank you for your visit to my blog and for your very kind and encouraging words. Always a treat to see you there. I did not know a Poinsettia could live that long? We get them here for Christmas but they usually are done by the end of Dec. Perhaps that is because i have a black thumb! :( Have a very merry Christmas Barbra. Blessings always.
