The Red Amaryllis

I started "Red Amaryllis" (15x22) in January, but got sidetracked and just finished it recently. I used just about every red I had on my palette, plus a couple of yellows. This was the first year in a long time that I did not have a new amaryllis for Christmas, so I had to make to with one of the many photos I have taken of them thru the years - easier to paint this way, but not nearly as much fun.
