I think every month and season have a distinctive color. Some of course you could all reasonably agree on such as ochres and warm colors for autumn. However I have always associated the color red with January. This year three stalks of Amaryllis plant blooming in my dining room have agreed with my color beliefs.
I think I will be doing several paintings of these brilliant ruffles as they wax and wane through the growing process. Hoorah for red!!
