A Cyclamen by Micheline Walker

This painting is called 183. It’s a cyclamen rendered in happy colours.

Flowers are so beautiful that it us difficult to do then justice in a painting. They are perfection, yet grow on their own, which invites reflection on creation. How can anything be so beautiful.

I have made several paintings (watercolours) of cyclamens, but not always successfully. Some have found their way to the recycling bin. I am fond of the cyclamen and orchids.

I am currently working on a blog about casuistry. Casuistry can take sinfulness out of sinning. One must therefore be prudent in presenting such a subject.

So I thought I would send you a cheerful painting on a very grey Saturday in my corner of the world. I hope you enjoy it.
