When In Doubt, Give Her Roses

Just a small 7X10 Acrylic on canvas technique: A study of a single rose & a tiny companion. After painting serious stuff, I like to clease my "mental palette".

Lovely gleam and glisten against the dark background. Great little ladybug on the leaves. Beautiful painting.

Thank you so much, Paula. Sunday I took Marilyn to buy Rose bushes for the garden, and photo'd this because it was so perfect. The ladybug was just a little accent I added.

So Skylar, that do you consider "serious stuff?"

Re: When In Doubt, Give Her Roses

As I did for Katrina, I am working on another series of images from Hurricane Ike. This is the 1 yr anniversary. The first (In Portrature) is "Child In Ruins".

Beautiful painting Skylar, it really pops out of the screen.
Hurricane Ike paintings do sound like "serious stuff".
