Roses- Fresh Cut

Hi, I painted this a few weeks ago with a set up of fresh cut roses. My roses have been just amazing this year, I guess they liked the cool wet spring. I rarely buy roses anymore, they don't seem to have any smell and before they open the heads seem to drop over.

This is oil on a 10 X 10 stretched canvas and is available to purchase. Contact me at barbarapask@zoomtown.com for purchase info.

I have spent most of this week working on a still life that I set up, taking my time and tweaking small details. Trying to maybe slow down a bit, not like I need another painting, lol. I have sooo many paintings stored in my studio but I tell myself "just keep painting". We can't improve if we don't paint and I want so badly to be really good at this one day.

I went to a new members luncheon this Saturday at the Cincinnati Womens Art Club, the club is 118 years old and was started because back then women were not allowed to join the Cincinnati Art Club. We've come a long way baby, lol.


See you soon

These roses are even more beautiful close up, Barb! I just love the pink roses! The red ones are gorgeous too, but pink roses are my favorite!! Thanks for sharing.

So glad you like them Nina, I love seeing close up shots of other paintings too. As you can tell I used a palette knife for most of the detail in the highlighted areas.
