This is a small original chalk pastel painting, 4" x 4", 2002. (I know "geraniums" isn't spelled with a "j", I just like it that way for the alliteration.)

The art is 4" x 4", single-matted with 2" of creamy white and a 1" step-edge solid oak wood frame.

Every autumn I move my geraniums into the corner of my basement. After resting for a month or two, perhaps responding to the lengthening days, they always bloom in mid-January and their variety of pinks is always welcome at a time of year when flowers are in short supply.

I placed the flowers in the turquoise vase I keep in the kitchen, and on the gingham placemat it was all such a lovely combination that I brought out the drawing materials, creating one sketch in chalk pastel and one in oil pastel. I like to keep these quick little sketches small and quick; they liven my senses for color and design and give me a little break during the workday.

This painting is also one of a set with January Jeraniums 1, an oil pastel painting. This chalk pastel painting carries the softer versions of the color scheme. I will also sell this as a set with January Jeraniums 2, both for $75.00.
