Poppies are such pretty flowers but they are here and gone so quickly it seems. For day 23 of Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge I used one of my reference photos to do a pink poppy.
In addition to painting flowers, I'm trying to grow one. I bought an amaryllis bulb before Christmas. Every year I think about growing one, but my apartment doesn't get much direct sunlight, especially in the winter. By the time any sunshine comes through my windows it is very week at the end of the day. I decided to give it a try this year and see what happens. I started journaling about it on Jan. 12 when I took it out of the box. Needless to say I haven't had much to write since then. They do take a long time to get started and this one isn't getting the most ideal conditions. lol
