Rose in the Shadows

Rose in the Shadows  9"x9"   oil
This little pot of Carpet Roses was peeking out from the shadows at a local nursery. Naturally, that red caught my eye and I tried for a very direct light/shadow approach on this one.

The different color temperatures of red in the flowers is well handled and very appealing to me.

The blues in the pot are lovely with the reds. I like the dropped petals and those wonderful greens. Well done, Mary!
