Callas and Roses #2

Callas and Roses #2

8x6in oil on canvas panel  $125.

This is what I did using the scrape-off ghost
from the post two days ago.

It is late and I am tired. I have been working at framing paintings
after I got home from teaching.
Last minute Julie should be my name.
The reason for all the extra work is because it is my new gallery
and studio's Grand Opening tomorrow and I want new work
up on the walls and everything looking great.
The artists in the Guild will have their work on display too and I
will take photos so you can see how lucky I am having
such a talented group.

We have a fabulous art crowd here in Las Cruces who attend this
monthly Art Ramble so I know it will be fun.
Will let you know how it goes tomorrow .

  1. I love how the Lilies are the stars and the roses supporting actors. There is just a hint in the roses, but they are still recognizable as such. Well done and good luck at the grand opening.

  2. Your flowers come out pure light,Julie!
    Sparkling through the screen,
    brilliant movement between reality and abstraction!

    Have wonderful day!

  3. What a jewel this piece is! I really love your work, Julie, and I know your opening will be a smashing success.
