I wasn't completely satisfied with the way how I painted the leaves in "Yellow Roses." So to get things out of the system, I did another rose painting. These roses are from Green Spring Gardens Park in Alexandria, Va. I've painted them many times, and I am sure "Pink Roses" won't be the last one.

"Pink Rose Bush" is several years old, painted in acrylic in my previous, tight style. It probably took two full days! Now I aim for a more painterly, "loose" style. "Pink Roses" took about two and a half hours. If I had spent more time on it, it would have gotten tighter and who wants to be uptight!
