I didn’t feel like working on my current studio painting of the river, wanting to leave that for another special day of painting. I had a vase of red roses that were dried up left over from my birthday and I thought I would use them as inspiration. The reds are darker and richer than you see in the photo, a nice kind of pop.
Do you see roses in this? I don’t either, but does it really matter? I used them as a kicking off point and it is alright that they didn’t make an appearance, their “scent” is in there somewhere.
I am undecided if this is finished or not and wondering if my addition of the green curly cue shapes are a hit or miss. I am not liking them too well. I might give it some thought and see if I need to continue or flip it over and paint on the other side. I really detest the ones at the bottom center. I am thinking if I were to go in and do something about those shapes, that I’ll mess it up.
- Short and sweet….have fun!
