A Couple of White Roses in black, white & gray

"White Rose Two"  8" x 5.5"  Charcoal, gesso, conte on paper
"White Rose Two" is my second attempt with this little rose in a bottle after chatting with Derek Jones about gesso, paper and charcoal as mediums. I will definitely continue exploring this combination and maybe I will become as proficient as he is!

"White Rose One"  8" x 5.5"   Vine charcoal, conte on paper
"White Rose One" is my first attempt. Definitely a different look and feel.

These two are little studies I'm doing before the big brush painting I'm going to do.

In the meantime.... check out this video of the Maid of Honor toast given at one of the most beautiful and fun weddings I've attended!

Oh, just click on this photo to see the video on youtube.
And now as Myra would say.... "Bye bye."
