Roses in White

Roses in White
Oil on panel. 8x6
I think roses are so hard to paint!  I had a different painting already sketched out from yesterday, and this morning, it simply did not call to me.  In fact, I shunned it - completely turning my back on it.  And in it's place, I choose something difficult?  What was I thinking?  Why do I allow my heart to lead me so?  I can only hope to capture the beauty of roses on canvas.  Their form, petals and shades evade me - but I will not let them win.  Competitive to the end, I am going to keep working on the rose until I master it - be it tomorrow or next year!  Painting number 408 in as many days.

  1. These roses are exquisite! I love to paint roses, not even half as beautiful, though! I really admire your roses!
