Oil on canvas, this lush painting of poinsettias measures 30" x 24" (sight size), with a frame that is 3 1/2" wide. The artist is Marise London, a Florida artist from Sarasota who had an art gallery there from the late 1970's til it closed in 2006. According to the previous owner of this painting it was said to have been painted in the 80's, possibly early 90's. It is signed with the artist's first name in the lower right corner, and the full name on the stretcher. NOTE: there is some slight glare on the right side of the painting that appears lighter in color, but the color is rich and vibrant all over the canvas. The frame is contemporary, wood with applied decoration, in soft tones of gold and silver. The frame is very heavy, which would increase cost of shipping, so painting can be sold and shipped without frame. The intensity of color and contrast in this painting are dramatic and appealing, and the large blossom in the center almost seems to float off the canvas. It is beautiful all year round, but is especially nice for the Holiday season, and lends a spot of gorgeous color to the grey shades of winter.
