Spring Roses

Spring Roses   12"x 12"   oil
Even with our rainy weather, I've noticed a few of these bushes here and there that have roses in bloom. I'm not enough of a gardener to know a name for them. My challenge in the painting, was not to paint EVERY rose I saw and try to simplify the value pattern and brushwork. It was fun to try this, and overall I like the effect.
