Small Red Cyclamen in a Clay Pot

Small Red Cyclamen in a Clay Pot


I can’t resist a cyclamen plant. The flowers twist and twirl, unfurling like parasols. They hover above the leaves like butterflies. So full of movement. And those leaves! Heart-shaped and delicately patterned. Enchanting!

The plants arrive in the stores in the middle of winter, a promise of spring.

This painting captures the magic of a miniature cyclamen plant in a clay pot. It asks you to look, to pay attention. Peer in closely and you'll see that I've mixed metallic paint with the pale green of the leaves to give them sparkle, like the subtle glitter on the real plant's leaves.

Frame this painting, hang it in your home and it will whisper its magic to you. It will be a constant companion reminding you that spring can be found in the depths of winter and joy can be found in the everyday.
