And what a way to go… I don’t know why painting an already dying cyclamen occured to me as a good idea.

Nor why putting a pink cyclamen in front of a background pattern that’s the same colour would make for an easy time of painting.

But the prints were fun to paint, especially the Liberty fabric.
