Pink Roses, 6x6 Oil Painting on Canvas

$89, Click to Purchase

After my fantasy flower that I posted earlier, this small painting is very traditional. It's sentimental enough to be a Valentine's Day gift. I really think that it's easier to paint a rose petal-by-petal than to do a softer, looser version like this. 

Our painting group had a lovely day Monday at Jetty Park at the port. Sometimes it inspires us to change it up a bit and sketch in our journals or take pictures for future paintings. The weather was perfect and exhilarating. Here are a couple of my sketch journal pages. Pelican paintings are in my future.
