This bountiful painting was one of the first that I did with oils. What a pleasure it was to blend colors in such a relaxed manner! (One can blend in acrylics, but it is a much more frantic process with the paint drying so quickly.) I used many different photographs of roses for this painting and combined them in one big bouquet. Upon finishing, I thought it was a complete flop. Eventually, like a loyal dog that keeps looking at you with eyes of love, we stared at each other enough that it won my heart and is now a total favorite! This painting arrives ready to hang in a beautiful wooden frame that perfectly offsets the artwork.
