Almost every year around Christmas I buy an amaryllis plant, and right after the new year I plant it and watch it grow. I love the big colorful flowers, and I enjoy sketching and painting it. Most of the time there is a second blooming after the first one dies out. Waiting to see if that happens.
I am a watercolor artist living in New Jersey. I am a member of the North East Watercolor Society, the New Jersey Watercolor Society, and several local and internet art organizations through which I exhibit my paintings. My favorite subjects are close focused florals and landscapes. I've recently begun teaching a beginning watercolor class at our local senior center.
