Rose Red


Another gallery painting (16x16). Many people tell me they find roses one of the most difficult subjects, but for some reason they are not for me, and I love painting them.
Monday the doctor replaced my over the elbow cast with a below the elbow cast. I can bend my elbow again! It still hurts some to straighten it, but it's gives me so much more use of my hand.

My husband grows roses. I have tried without success to paint them. I think I get lost in the value changes. You did a lovely job. I am inspired to try again.
