This is one of 2 entries accepted into the "Paint-Out at the Arboretum" (Dallas, Tx) scheduled for the month of Sept '08. It will be showcased along with a national exhibit, "Beauty and the Brush". There will also be a "Members Only" event at the same time.
This painting is based on one of the windows at the front entrance of the DeGolyer house, built by the DeGolyer family in the early 1900's. It sits on 66 acres of lavish botanicl gardens. I was inspired by the contrast of texture between the stone masonry, the iron scrollwork and the graceful arch formed by the pale yellow roses.
