"Dancing Amaryllis"
gouache on paper -  size approx. 8.5"h x 5.7"w
February, 2013 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

This painting was started last year, but I had some "issues" with smoothing out the color transitions and strokes in the background. After getting a bit frustrated with it (as sometimes happens), I put it aside for a long nap, rather than make an unholy mess of things. 

I finally got to where I wanted it to be, this month ... keep "dancing"! :o)



tot ziens,
Judy
