"Blue Poinsettia" original oil and paper on cradled panel © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Blue Poinsettia"
8"x10" oil and paper on cradled panel with 1" stained in green cradle

I had fun working with this blue poinsettia.  I wanted to stream my paper as I have come to love, but I also wanted to paint this in oil so as to have the freedom to use very painterly strokes and work in the collage piece like I wanted.  It almost seems to have a ghostly presence...or spiritual (since we are so close to Christmas!)...Anyhoo...it was another first for me blending the two media...paper and oil!  I've slipped in a pic of the beginning of this piece so you can see how I worked in my paper stream!



Even though I've just painted a Christmassy piece I did want to wish everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  I am thankful for all of you!

Thank you Martinealison! I think they dye the poinsettias blue. I've seen them in many different colors. Happy Day to you my far away friend!!

Vous remercier Martinealison ! Je pense qu'ils teignent le bleu de poinsettias. Je les ai vus dans beaucoup de couleurs différentes. Jour heureux à vous mon ami au loin ! !

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving up there Saundra! And your blue poinsettia made me smile! Over here, the poinsettia is the official 'Christmas flower' - in full (red) bloom during December!

I did Liz! Poinsettia IS the same official Christmas flower here as well...I just painted a blue one for a Christmas card...thus the early showing of Christmas...kinda like how they start with the holiday ads at about October now! lol. Hope your days have been wonderful as well!!

The paper does appear as a spiritual streamer crossing through the flower.
I also like that surprise bit of yellow ochre in the petal.
