Poinsettia Pop!

- by Lindi Levison

This week's theme: The Month of December

It's December. It's the month of holidays and gathering together. It brings us the Winter Solstice and the longest night of the year. December brings celebrations, light and laughter in the dark, cold winter. Perhaps this is why we choose to bring life into the places we dwell. It's an impulse that we have followed for over a thousand years. The flowers and evergreens remind us that even in the austere of winter there is life. Their beauty assures us that the days will lengthen and abundance will return.


Art: Poinsettia Pop! by Artist Lindi Levison
Created for ebsq's Flower-of-the-Month show, December 2004. Poinsettias come in a huge array of colors, so I "planted" a variety of these same colors on my palette and went from there... I created this work in what some might call my trademark style: bright colors, high contrast, and glowing edges.
