Done by my teacher, Mira M. White. It's 15x22", pastel and watercolor on watercolor paper, in a rose gold frame, called "A Visit from Rose World." You can't see in the photograph, but there are some slightly iridescent areas. Absolutely stunning in person!

Wow that is stunning. I also like the mixture of abstract with the rose. Most unusual.

You deserve it Kris!!

What a great addition to your home! I have apiece from one of my instructors and it means a lot to have it. Yours has found a good home.

Kris, that is gorgeous! I love the little geometric bits, they look like they were so tricky and have such elegant patterns. Beautiful!

I did that too, not this year but I bought one of Charlie's paintings and am getting ready for another one plus currently paying off on a Deborah Secor. I know I treasure it even more for what I've learned from them. What a great idea!

Merry Christmas to you! A very merry painting. I thought you might have been a bit crazy when I read you bought a painting but this one is very, very nice!!!

Great post. I'm glad you have given yourself the gift of instruction from the artist. That's a value well spent. And you own one yourself!

Actually, it's the second painting of hers that I've bought. I never posted this because it's an oil, but I think everyone will appreciate it!
18x24" oil on canvas, called "Imperfect Symmetry."

Ok - love this perhaps even more. Textures, shapes. lost and found edges... patterns.... yeah!!!
