Roses from Peggy's Garden

Rose Study 6"X 8" oil on canvas $100.

I guess the nest series will have to wait because the flowers certainly will not. Just picked yesterday these roses were wilting by the time I had finished painting them.
This study of the roses took a longer than I anticipated because I was forgetting to paint only the
impression of them and started to capture every detail. The trouble with having a background as an illustrator is detail is what the client usually wanted. I am working hard at suggesting detail instead of a photographic image.
