In this detail of a floral the roses are very important in establishing the illusion of 3 dimensions.

The painting in progress is a still life of the bouquet of roses my hubby gave me yesterday. I was having one of those days... He sure knows how to cheer a girl up! They really brightened my day and inspired a new painting.

These paintings are in progress (almost finished). The first two will be submitted for juried salons. The last one is undecided, I'm happy with parts of it but as a whole not quite as thrilled. We'll see.
Life is very good right now. I've cut back to one day of teaching and spend the rest of the work week in the studio painting. It's such a pleasure to finally commit to a full time schedule in the studio. I have to do it in 4 10's but that works well for me.

The Della Robia's were absolutely GORGEOUS!
A wonderful surprise was the public library which had some amazing murals and an entire room for the fine arts.
Can't wait to go back for more exploring.
