Every once in awhile, usually at Christmas, I buy myself an amaryllis bulb, and then spend several weeks waiting for it to bloom. I have wanted to paint this flower for a long time, but did not want to deal with the space around the long stalk like stem. Solution - ignore the stem and fit the flowers into a square composition. I really like how the colours and the brushstrokes in the flower and the background are broken, and not blended smoothly. It looks very Cezannesque.
