"Winter Rose" ©



Walking past the row of roses that lines the dirt driveway, this beauty caught my eye. I was packing for a run up to the Sierra's to paint before the holidays consume me. Throwing caution to the wind, I played in the paint and had fun painting all of the shades of this lovely winter rose.

Oil on panel, 5" X 7"

I'll be off line until Monday, there are no phones or Internet access in the woods, thank goodness.

thanks John and Marian, it was spontaneous and I really just had fun. The rose had amazing colors, originally white but it had passed it's prime and was a multi-colored beauty. Thanks for the comments and looking, I really appreciate your time.
