" Pink Rose II "
Oil
6" x 6"
Available
I liked both of these rose in the jar compositions and it was fun to paint them one after the other making subtle changes to this one. I made the diagonal line on the right the same pink as in the rose, to repeat that color and it does draw the eye there, too. I will plant a few of my large containers with roses this spring, can't wait! They are hard to winter over here, we are a zone 3, even with protection. We've had a very mangy looking racoon in the yard this week. His tail looks like a rat's tail with little fur on it. I hope it isn't sick. Someone must be feeding it.

I love the blue of the Ball jar! Love that tint...I have a ball jar that has thise plant someone gave me the day my first daughter was born....I just love the way it looks on every kitchen windowsill Ihave had since then....Sometimes there is something very beautiful and elegant about the every day stuff!

Every day stuff! That is what I am attracted to. I get the silver stuff out from time to time to arrange and it doesn't ring true to me somehow and I abandon it. Back to the kitchenie objects. Thanks for stopping by.

I bought several of these jars for 50 cents each at a yard sale way back when...
This is a lovely painting.
