Cyclamen 8" x 8" oil on panel

This plant has bloomed consistently for a whole year- i don't know why- usually my cyclamen sort of peter out...I love its heart shaped leaves and upward reaching fuschia petals. ( I need paint that color- can't get the vibrant pink it needs!)There are lots of hopeful buds coming up underneath. I think its success might be because it lives on my kitchen windowsill and I water it at its first sign of wilt, unlike my other houseplants gasping in the other room!

Hi Sally,
I like your cyclamen painting and the balance of colour. I paint and come have a visit to my site.
