12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
While I had a live poinsettia plant in the house, decided to use it as a painting subject. Initially, I had thought of painting them in the pot as a still life, but then decided looking down into the pot might be a more exciting viewpoint. 

The plant was variegated and initially I painted it with too strong a contrast of red and white and then decided to tone it down and move more towards the pinker tones.
