Red Amarillis, Floral Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

I really do love the color red. Red cars, red "sale" banners, red cherries, red lipstick, every color red nail polish OPI ever made, red hots, red potatoes, Cincinnati Reds, red hair, and of course, red shoes.

Painting the color red can make an artist nuts (at least this one!) I used three colors of red in this painting. Fascinating to observe how the color looks when light passes through the petals and it's interesting to try and capture their transparency.

6"X6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. $100.00
