These are paintings for my Christmas cards for December of this year but created in January. The first is a pen & ink drawing done in a simple style. The next is a "yellow line" painting where the sketch or drawing is done by painting yellow lines through the leaves and petals so the lines make many new shapes. These shapes were then painted without a total reality color. The third painting is more realistic yet has an abstract quality with the petal and leaves painted negatively and the color allowed to drip into the white area below.
