Roses

Roses
Oil on deep-cradled canvas, 12x12, $150



Today felt like a painting day, the first one in a looong time.

I've been painting, but I've been distracted with wedding issues and housekeeping issues and dog issues and commitment issues. Today, though I had errands to run and chores to tackle, I painted and it felt like something different, something solid.

"Roses" is one of three paintings I worked on today. I don't usually paint still lifes, but the roses (left over from Erika's wedding) are so beautiful, I just had to try. The painting itself is a tad more white than this photograph; I couldn't get the whites without blowing out all the detail!

So it was a good day, and it feels like the start of a good stretch, and I am thankful.
