This bud from a Christmas Cactus, made monumental here, has just bloomed into a bright holiday flower. Sometimes they bloom closer to Thanksgiving, then again in the spring. I like the strangeness or the shapes of these bloom as they unfurl. The dark backgrounds are a big challenge with watercolor and take many layers to achieve the rich translucent darks that make this painting so dramatic. This painting will make a great diptych with its partner painting titled Bursting Forth of the bud of a Christmas cactus before it blooms. They are the same size, though Bursting Open is currently unframed! Place them back to back!
For the past few years I've been painting flowers up so close that they envelope the viewer in their sensuality and rich color. Enlarged, they become almost abstractions from nature without seeing the outer shape or the environment around them.
This watercolor is painted on 140# Arches Cold Press paper. It is an original painting, not a print. A Certificate of Authenticity comes with the watercolor signed by Sandy Haight. This painting is unframed.
Giclee prints of this painting are available in 2 sizes in this Etsy store.

I’ve been using watercolor and ink brush line in my illustration work for nearly 20 years, but in a much more controlled and predictable way. My pictures appear on book jackets, ads, posters, logos and packaging all over the country and Canada. If you’d like to see my world of client driven projects, check out my published artwork at http://sandyhaight.com. My Watercolor Life Drawings, Sumi Figure drawings and watercolors can be seen in other sectons of this Etsy shop and on my fine art web site at https://sandyhaightfineart.com. I show my work in the Seattle, WA region.
I was honored to be the gold medal winning poster artist for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in 2016 with my watercolor painting of a tulip bouquet.
In 2012 I qualified to be a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS). This is earned by being juried into a select number of local chapter and international watercolor society shows sponsored by NWWS. The initials now follow my signature on recent watercolor paintings that you can see in the Floralscapes section of this shop.
