“Pink Roses”, framed in a custom walnut stained frame is an 8″x10″ oil on canvas. Painted in warm tones, which evokes a sense of romance from yesteryear.
These beautiful pink roses are the last for this year. The rose petals are a delicate pink and bloom in groups that almost look like a bouquet from the flower shop. It’s my favorite rose-bush! Do you love roses as much as I do? What’s your favorite flower?
“Pink Roses” original oil painting will soon be available in the shop.
This one of a kind floral painting would make a
beautiful gift for that special someone this Christmas!
Back to working on my Roses painting. 👍🏻 So I laid the Rose on the palette to make sure the color string was right and then I got paint on the rose, aphids crawled out and got in the paint- then little bits of rosebud pellets fell out of the inside of the rose and covered the palette. 😝
Had to stop and clean everything before snapping a photo! This set off a series of mishaps in which I ultimately dropped the cap to Napthol Red paint on the carpet. It bounced twice and left two nice blobs of juicy oil paint on my blue carpet! Nice one! Needless to say it was a little frustrating!
We’re at the height of summer and flowers blooming in all their glory! These are Fuchsias, some of my favorite flowers! They bloom all summer and the hummingbirds love them. What Flower is at the top of your faves list?
It’s Daisy time in our neck of the woods, and I’m looking forward to creating some new works with these cute little flowers. They grow wild in our area, and last a long time. The best part about them is they don’t smell so great and the deer leave them alone! I have to grow my gardens with fencing around them to save my plants from the ravenous deer. All they do is eat, yet they look like they are starving! But the daisies, they thrive and don’t become a deer’s mid-nite snack!
Here’s a few Daisy paintings for my Daisy loving buds:
These paintings are on sale for a limited time! I’d love to wrap one up and send it to you! If you don’t like it, send it back. No questions asked!
This past weekend, I transplanted my Morning Glory seedlings into hanging baskets. I saw an idea on Pinterest to grow Morning Glories in hanging baskets and let the vines cascade down. It makes a stunning display of color! Last year I grew the flowers on a trellis in the garden but they were too close to the fence and the deer ate the vines, leaving me with nothing! This year I’m outsmarting them and growing my favorite blue flowers hanging from our top decks, 20′ in the air! Take that deer!
Here’s a few of my favorite Morning Glory paintings:
I’m looking forward to creating some more Morning Glory floral paintings this year! And, if you’re on Pinterest follow me and of course I’ll follow back!
