Christmas Cactus

My Christmas Cactus got the message!
It usually blooms twice a year and always near a holiday - Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentines Day - it has never before bloomed at Christmas. I'm going to have my class work on this tomorrow for a warm up, using a large brush, simple strokes, and drop-in color to mix on the paper. I'll let you know how it goes - I'll show you my demo. Stay tuned.

Gosh, that is so pretty. The petals are beautiful. And set against the tree, it is really nice. I look forward to seeing the demo.
