Re: "Rag Rhodie".....my first flower

Terry,
Thought I'd reply with my impressions of your painting before reading what everyone else said.

I think this is delicate, soft, beautiful, and a delight to see. It personifies what negative painting is all about.

It will look really nice float mounted under glass. I'm sure it, and others you paint like it, will sell quickly at your show.

Sylvia

Re: "Rag Rhodie".....my first flower

This is one of those threads that "Ohhhhhhh" escapes my mouth when I first see it. It's absolutely beautiful! No doubt, this and others like it will sell like hotcakes!

Terry - wonderful finish from the Studio. It all works so well it is as if the flowers grow from the paper. Great work.

Thankyou,

Charles said it so nicely.

This turned out very well, Terry. I love the idea of the paper being the art ... wish i could see your exhibit.

Re: "Rag Rhodie".....my first flower

Hi! Terry, Your "Rag Rhodie" is so appealing, like everything about it. It'd be great to see the contrast of texture...paper and flower in a floater frame, pretty much as you have presented it. Regards, Marianne

Re: "Rag Rhodie".....my first flower

Terry, This is lovely! You've captured the delicate softness of the flowers. It should look beatuiful in a frame.
