Opening Night Rose

"Opening Night Rose"


8 X 8

Oil on Panel

Sold!





Had to paint in the afternoon today which is not my best time.  But I managed to get through by focusing hard and then taking several breaks.  Good news is; I'm not afraid to paint roses anymore!  A special thank you to Bronwyn Chelius for the terrific reference photo!


Here is how this painting might look framed.
