Fresh Cut Roses Still Life

"Roses From the Heart"

5 5/8" x 7 3/4" Oil on linen.

email me for purchasing info.


These roses are some my husband grows and he proudly brought me this lovely bunch back in the summer. How appropriate to paint them in February when love is in the air!

When I announced my new puppy in the last post in December, I knew that puppy training and Christmas would make painting difficult for a few weeks. Little did I know that a few more life issues would again push painting down on my priority list into the new year. I will share a bit more later, but posting and painting may not get back to normal for another month or so. Painting and growing as an artist is and will remain a huge long term priority for me so know this is temporary!!!!!!

Happy Valentine to you all!!!!

You know, when I see an artist not posting, I really worry about them. I'm so glad you mentioned you are busy but OK. Cecil Irving has dropped out of site and Daniel Edmondson has just posted after many months absence. I love the online art community and become very "protective" about someone I click with. At least I won't have to worry about you now! BTW, beautiful Roses!

Soft, lovely painting. Isn't it annoying how that pesky "life" likes to interfere with our paitning time? Well, the good news is your painting will always be there waiting for you, when you're ready. This is what I keep telling myself, at least!

This is such a charming, well-executed painting ! Lovely. I too have had "icky" things occur lately to interfere with my painting time. Hope things work out well and you can paint with abandon soon. You are very talented.
