Christmas Poinsettia

Not only are Poinsettias beautiful, they have a interesting history.  During the 14th - 16th century the sap was used to control fevers and the leaves were used to make red dye.  I personally think they make excellent decoration during the winter and Christmas season. 
I like the bright warm red highlights and the mood this painting has.  I feel it is important to capture a mood in every painting I make big or small.
