"Amaryllis & Snowman... Related?

Do you know what an amaryllis is? That cool looking flower that blooms in the winter time inside your house....  well, a friend of mine gave one to me today, but I have to plant and care for it. I planted it in the container that was part of the package and I had this little snowman guy hanging around the studio, so I put him in the planter/pot. They look like twins! The amaryllis bud is on the left...

I think this flower will bloom in like 6 to 8 weeks. It will be fun to paint eventually. I couldn't believe I was painting dirt today! Yes, that brown looking snow is supposed to be dirt!

Another painting...  I didn't know what I was going to paint today until it just materialized.... from the heart.

Your snowman reminds me to keep on smiling because the first spring blooms are only 6 to 8 weeks away (I hope). I can hardly wait.
