Amethyst, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Amethyst is the jewel assigned to the month of February.  When I painted this purple Iris at the beginning of the month there was no other choice for the title because... as I studied the photo of this flower the light hit sections of the petals and created numerous shades and tints of purple similar to the way the facets of a cut amethyst reflect light.  Sometimes you just have to go with what is presented to you...

Speaking of presents... go to my blog  to view the GUITAR painting I did for my husband's birthday yesterday...

10x8 oil painting, almost ready to hang.
