Roses in Terracotta.



Roses in Terracotta

8x6in  oil on canvas panel  $125. SOLD

Roses left from my gallery opening. Too beautiful not to paint.

Artist Note.

I have been busy setting up the studio/classroom for Tuesdays session.
I am cautiously excited about teaching in the new space.
It will take some time to feel the comfort level I have here, but
the opportunity to have the artists exhibit their work in the studio
on the monthly, First Friday Art Ramble is worth the change. I feel
Art has to be seen and there are not always opportunities available.
I hope to make it a fun  and relaxing situation in a true studio setting.
Will report back in September with details and photos.

  1. Another beauty. It is fun how my lines and your structures can look like a mess, or at least an abstract feeling. Take a step back and the motive get so much clearer.

    1. Glad you can sense the abstract feeling, Roger. I do aim for that first and then try to move it into a bit of impressionism
      and fracturing.
