|Stop and Smell the Roses|
8 x 10
oil on panel
We got to the gardens early and enjoyed wonderful weather as we painted. The roses were especially thick and beautiful that week. We broke for lunch and ate at the Gardens Restaurant.The food was good but I have to say the service was slow. However, there was lots of interesting conversation related to art. After we painted some of my friends came back to my house for dessert.
I'll still work on this painting a bit more, but I was interested in capturing the big shapes and colors and minimizing or omiting the details.
