"Pink Roses" (oil on linen; 8" x 10") sold


Reference photo

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" (acrylic, 16" x 12")

"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!
