Roses


Roses
"Very contemporary", texted my mother this morning, when I sent her a picture of my painting. I took it as a compliment! (I am not sure that is how she meant it, but that is ok.) 

When I envisioned this large painting, the whole thing was black and white and all of the shades in between painted over iridescent gold. I started with the gold and then outlined my subject, but I loved the burnt sienna showing through the white so much, that I decided to change up my plan. NOT that that is anything unusual with my paintings! It is one of the things I love about not being a realist painter - that my paintings can turn unexpected corners and I don't have to pull them back.
