A Favorite Rose

A Favorite Rose         8" x 6"           oil
I'm changing it up today and painted one of my favorites, for it's color and many fluffy petals. I really concentrated here on keeping cooler lights and warm darks. Sometimes, I can get so dazzled by color that I forget that even reds are both warm and cool in relative temperature. A good reminder and exersize for me.

I so love those painterly petals you've laid down in this lovely spectacle of color... such a joy on this cold, grey day.
