Pink Rose by Vonnie Kohn, small works, floral
Have you ever wanted to receive a dozen roses from an admirer? Roses are my favorite floral subject..also the most challenge for me to paint. I participated in a plein air event at the Dallas Arboretum last Spring and chose to wander into the Rose Garden. I was absolutely enthralled with the many varieties of roses. I didn't know there were so many! This small oil was a result of the many studies I was able to accomplish before leaving. The small gallery wrapped canvas was a perfect surface to work quickly because of the changing light.
Original oil on gallery wrap canvas (needs no frame)...5 x 5" $100
I'm on a journey ...one which involves keen observation, traveling, listening to the inner muse, painting the beauty of God's creation!
The smell of oils, the challenge of new ideas, delicately balancing all I have learned in the process--spells adventure and another moment of learning.
Come with me; share the journey...
