#56 Rose

8x8 acrylic on canvas, 3/4 painted edge, $60 SOLD

     I recently attended the 2012 Garden Tour in Cambria, CA, taking hundreds of pictures for future paintings. I have several larger paintings in mind from these photos, but I need to finish some portraits in progress before I can switch gears. I did squeeze this one in. A friend and fellow painter Wendy McKellar and I started a new summer challenge called "Different Strokes". Once a week, she and I will each paint the same subject, either from a photo or plein air. Having just returned from a beautiful day of flowers and ocean, I picked this rose to start. Wendy's oil painting is available as well from her website.
