A couple of "Sweet Peach Rose's"

"Sweet Peach Rose One"  oil on paper  15"x11"  -SOLD
"Sweet Peach Rose Two" oil on paper  15"x11"
Just couldn't stand to leave too much paint on the palette!
I did it, I put paint on the drawings from yesterday and a month or two has not gone by!! Amazing...

Thanks my artist buddies for urging me on, you all are right, we all need that that little push every once in a while.

Finishing up these little guys today, I was thinking about a conversation I just had with my Mount Pleasant artist friend Beth. We were talking about how hard it is to leave any extra paint on the palette that you put out for a painting. Well, here is the proof. I used my palette knife to scrape it up and then apply it to my paintings! Professional artists oil paint is expensive! Gotta pay for the good quality and extra pigment though, it sure makes a difference!

Bye for now,

What? It's October already?

One peach rose--start  15"x11"
Two peach rose--start  15"x11"
Oh my goodness, it's October already and I missed the 30 days of paintings in September with Leslie and all.... well, maybe I could just get started a little late!

I'm okay, been a little busy with some outside business Randy and I have going on, all good, all good.

I'll put some color to these little gems and get them back to you tomorrow... ideally.  : )

PS: If I'm not careful, it'll be time to paint Santa again...hmm, maybe it is time now....
