"Happy Cyclamen"

Happy Cyclamen
8 x 8 Oil on paper

For several years, this cyclamen has looked like it had died forever after spring. I have resisted the temptation to get rid of it "just in case" and for the last five years, it has rewarded me with its beautiful blooms every February.
I started the painting as a pastel on sanded paper. I was not happy with the pastel results and decided to experiment using oil paint on the same paper. I liked the way the paint "glided" over the paper.
