Happy Valentine's Day. These are my third attempt at painting these roses, and I still find them difficult to do....so it is time to haul out my books and sharpen the pencils again. But I do like the composition - sort of pleasantly in your face!
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
