I bought a few roses yesterday and am enjoying painting them. I intentionally painted this a little looser. I love painting on an elongated canvas. This one is a 12 x 24 x 2".
The scene when I went out to photograph the painting. Ruthie thinks she is so cool. She is. A snake in February? My husband did not think he liked cats until he learned they help keep snakes away. Ruthie is his hero. He is not a snake lover. The second night we were in Costa Rica he opened our room door and there was a small black snake greeting him. It could not have happened to a better person. I just got my running shoe and pushed it outside. I make fun of him but if it had been a big spider I would not have slept the rest of the trip.
Love how there seems to be a bit of yellow pulled up into the background. This is a gorgeous painting, Carol. One of my absolute favorites! Ruthie looks to be quite relaxed with that snake lying beneath her head!ReplyDelete
