Pink Roses 075 SOLD

Jules has the uncanny ability to go out in the yard gather a few things, throw them in a jar... and they are beautiful. She could arrange burned twigs, pine straw and poison ivy and make it look beautiful. Granted, these are roses in a jar, they were eye catchingly and beautifully simple. I meant to paint them yesterday, but I didn't get to them until this afternoon. The petals had started to drop, and of course, that made me mad... until I realized that it made for a much more interesting piece. I was afraid I had lost this one as well, all the values were very light, and for the first time in a long while, I actually felt strange and uneasy in front of the easel. It all worked out, like it usually does, and I was very happy with the outcome.
