Roses and Ribbon

6"x6" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

"Flowers always make people better and happier; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul."
- Luther Burbank

Today's painting is "Roses and Ribbon". A nice small square one is fun after a larger painting. Small can be a challenge after painting larger though. Using a palette knife helps you paint, rather than 'draw' - as you have to simplify, simplify, simplify! You are reduced to indicating shapes of darks & lights, no matter how subtle....and the viewer's eye puts it together to tell the brain exactly what those masses of lights & darks are. Very fun indeed!

I do welcome requests for commissions. Please contact me at for a price list per size.
