Roses in a Tuscan Vase


20x16" Oil on canvas (Click to view larger.)


Subject matter: This was painted larger than I've done in the past and it felt good to branch out--literally (pun not intended). Roses have always been my nemesis and so it felt good to finally be able to paint them. Because of this, I decided to keep it. This was painted partly from a still life set-up in a studio and later from the photos I took of it.

Surface: I used a portrait-quality canvas and truly loved it. It has a fine weave and makes the paint flow so easily.
