“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” Henry David Thoreau
The red rose painting series continues. This painting idea came from a photograph I took of red roses picked from yes, my famous red rose bush. I really enjoyed placing small bundles of these red roses throughout our home ~ they were gorgeous roses to look at during the summer months.
Red Roses Series #4, is an oil pastel painting (10×8) done on red poppy tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper. When my photograph was taken the vase of roses was against a light colored wall – that didn’t work for the theme of my series. Creatively the painting developed in much the same manner as the others – in this case I substituted the colors for what I saw in my minds-eye, but used the same values.
We’ve been away to attend a nieces wedding, a beautiful blushing bride and happy couple. I might add! Glad to be back and looking forward to catching up with everyone.
