Red Lion Amaryllis

My neighbor and friend Leslie Palmer surprised me with a lovely Red Lion Amaryllis bulb this past Christmas.  After dutifully planting and watering in the right light, six weeks later we had these magnificent red flowers.  I actually remembered to take some photos :)

Not one for painting flowers, this one called out to me.  The brilliant red color was so awesome...not a color I play with often.  This is done on white pastelmat, from the same pad as the previous pastel.

The blooms only lasted about ten days, but my painting will cheer me forever! :)
