Flowers of Winter

What flower do you associate with winter?
Cyclamen is my choice.
Sturdy, dependable and cheery are three words that come to mind.
Wonderful texture for painting.

And might I add....

Happy New Year to all.

  1. There couldn't be a better suited painting for a New Year's Day post, Helen. It's bright and cheery and brings hopes for a peaceful, and positive new year! My best to you!

  2. I agree with Carol - nothing better suited.. Love the way you did the flowers. The deep red of the shadow areas really make the flowers have form. Your new year is off to a great start.

  3. Yes, cyclamens are a must in winter, as you say they are very dependable and brighten up the grey days. Beautifully painted and wishing you a Happy New Year too !

  4. Love everything about this painting, Helen! It is simply beautiful!
