Cyclamen in Winter

 

We received this beautiful cyclamen from a dear friend who came over for dinner. I have tried to paint cyclamen twice before, but the images were stiff and kind of tough looking. This time, I think I did a better job capturing the way the blossoms both bounce and then curve. I love how the blossoms cascade over the leaves. The pale pink contrasts nicely with an earthy brown background. My new winter bloom to love!
