Caron's right, it IS a rose! :D Very nice, what medium did you use?

I certainly see a rose too. Don't be so hard on yourself. Did you see my rendition of the Horus statue several weeks ago? Mine had sunglasses!!!:D
Have fun, and a great day! :)

yep...ya lied...you can do a flower....i knew it...its pretty...i love the leaves in the background..how did ya do it???
Thanks everyone for looking But I know it's not good *S* Wing it's oils. Bad waste of oils LOL Shelly how did I do it? Boy now there is a question. I just started with painting greens all over but then putting highlights on I ended up with almost the same color leaves everywhere. I don't have the faintest idea what I do wrong. The rose went through periods of resembelence but then I think I started lightening it too much too LOL
Here's a pic taking in daylight. Not much better in the light of the day LOL

Luvy ... what's all this talk I've seen on other posts that you can't do flowers?!!? I love this one ... the way the colors flow and blend! You're way too hard on yourself. This is truly a delight to look at!

This painting looks a lot nicer than you think it does. It may not look exactly like the photograph, but it's a PAINTING.
I catch myself trying to make a painting or drawing look like a photo too. Might as well just take a photo! Let paintings be paintings: take a tip from the Impressionists.
I like the creaminess of your petals...not unlike Renoir.
And it probably didn't help that you picked the most difficult picture to paint! :D
Don't give up on flowers...you have a nice touch.

Luvy...sometimes what we consider our biggest mistakes turn out to be our greatest works...*smiles*
Well, I think you only proved that people can do a lot more than they think they can!
I think it's very good, love the colors too.....very nice!

You can do anything you put your mind to Luvy, and see you did :)
Its got a softness to it thats very unique, and blends nicely. Don't be so hard on yourself. For "never" doing flowers it looks very good.
very beautiful rose..it stands very well on it's own too
