Callas and Roses
Yellow Roses and Calla Lilies
8x6in oil on canvas panel SOLD
Had a wonderful weekend with a visiting friend who also is an art lover.
Finally did the flowers and I am going to send this to my daughter, so
Rainy - if you are reading this I hope you like it!
I have painted this and wiped it off so many times - at least 12 attempts.
I do not know how many of you go thru this, but I could
see so clearly what I wanted it to look like and for the life of me
just could not pull it off.
What I do find helpful is sitting and analyzing what I DO NOT LIKE
and then examine the areas that are left.
Here is a ghost scrape off that I do like most areas and am going to work
on this again.

I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
