You know, in my life time as an artist, I have done very very few roses. I find them particularly difficult to paint. I end up tight every time, as you can see in this daily painting of "Birthday Rose". I doubt seriously I will ever become a "Rose Painter". I decided to paint this one today however, inspite of the fact that I don't particularly enjoy painting roses, to honor the fact that my husband, came home yesterday, with a rose for what he called, my "Un Birthday". You see, today is my birthday, so he was a day early. The least I could do is paint it. I used a bit of artistic licence on it. Well, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it!
This painting is a 6x8 oil on panel, and is available for $75.
