Roses and Cherries





10X10"
SOLD


I deliberated whether or not to spring for the price on these roses and boy am I glad I did...they have been so much fun to paint.  I liked pairing them with the dish of cherries for contrast.  After spending some time away from oils I am excited to once again work with them.  Sometimes a breather is all you need to be inspired.

Welcome back to oil. I know I am an acrylic guy, but I love bold brush strokes and this is a good example of lots of them. Love the colors and that there is so much variation in them. Great work.

Oh Linda, this is just so fabulous. I love your lilting brushwork. It has a beautiful rhythm! Bravo.

Does this mean if I paint in oil I could make a break through?
I am looking for artistic guarantees here?
Oh.....that's right there are none except never "giving upping." That works but slowly ...very very slowly. nancy

According to my accountant, flowers and food purchased for still lifes are tax deductible. I told him I'm going to become a famous painter of steak, sushi, lobster, champagne... :)
