Begonia Blossoms - a floral for (nearly) February

Begonia Blossoms       oil         12"x 9"
As I mentioned yesterday, I have been missing flowers and now with February and Valentine's Day right around the corner....well, I couldn't resist! They are catching my eye for color. These are from Manito Park last spring in Spokane and the colorful bunches just went on and on. Of course the challenge is to decide where the focus will be and I enjoy looser brushwork in much of the composition.
