long stem

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.

  1. 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!
