Blooming Color 6" x 6" oil on board
This was done for the Daily Paintworks paint a rose challenge.
I was a bit of a late bloomer in getting it in on Saturday just before a
new challenge was started. My first rose went into the compost pile
but I decided to give it another try.
I find everyday ordinary things that no one really thinks of
as beautiful much less intimidating to paint than something as
exquisite as a rose, a flower that has
inspired poetry and love songs since man has been creating them.
To get over my hang up about it I decided to just have
fun with it and play with the
color and the brushstrokes.
I'm glad I didn't give up!
