These Amaryllis, were brought home over the Christmas break by my wife Angela. They instantly inspired me to create a study that is now part of my Fine Art collection. Over the span of two weeks, each day I followed the decaying process of these lovely flowers. I primarily focused on the stamens and the pistil but it was the textures created by the flowers that was my inspiration. One of the discoveries that was made, regardless of the condition of the flowers, the stamens and pistil appeared to remain intact and functioning.
