Roses Against Adobe



Roses Against Adobe

6x8in  oil on canvas panel  $125. SOLD

I really, really enjoyed painting these beautiful roses.
I had fun with the title too. Can go two ways,
I mean, why are the roses against Adobe?
What has adobe ever done to them!
Did I hear a groan?

    P. S. Love the adobe! :)

  2. Just lovely, Julie. The colors sing yet somehow make a quiet statement at the same time.

  4. Also, I love the deep pink tinge at the edges of the petals- give the painting real "oomph".

    2. Thanks Julie! That means a lot coming from you! I listened to your response to my question about how you handle whites. Have you thought about doing some demo videos; possibly demos on fracturing?
