Roses Of Late Summer, Crystal Vase & North Light

6"x6" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

"Flowers are words which even a baby can understand."
- Arthur C. Coxe

We've had a second round of blooms on our Eden rose. It's putting out some big canes- next year this thing should be quite magnificent! They have a delicate fragrance but a full ruffly bloom head - soo nice to cut & bring in the house.....and paint.

To purchase, please visit my gallery store on DailyPainters.com

I'm going to be starting another commission next- a pair of dogs- Australian shepherds, that are part of a wedding party!! and they are sooo pretty! I'm really looking forward to this! Thanks for following along as this artist's life unfolds!

****For all my Virginia & Maryland friends:
I'm headed down to Chincoteague, VA this weekend for Seventh Annual Plein Air Event sponsored by the Chincoteague Cultural Alliance! The artists will be out & about on Chincoteague & Assateaugue Islands painting in the open air. Saturday evening ends with a reception, exhibit and sale of the artists' work. This year the event will move to the spacious Paschal Hall at St. Andrew's Church - 6288 Church Street on. The reception is 6-10pm, Saturday, September 11th. Make your summer last a little longer with a delightful trip out to the Eastern shore this weekend!

**Now....for the big secret, if you haven't learned this about me already- just one of the reasons I LOVE going to Chincoteague is because I grew up as one little 'horse-crazed' girl....and "Misty of Chincoteague" was a favorite story of mine. I'm always surprised when I meet folks who don't know of the story- so here's the wiki article!- this is a classic, and a Newbery medal winner (literature for children). Of course- the other reasons I return each year to paint there are: good food, fun friends, and fine art in a beautiful natural setting! What else could you want?! I hope to see you there!

Welcome to my latest new subscribers! I do hope you enjoy the paintings, photos & stories! I always love hearing comments from my readers!!

I LOVED MISTY of Chincoteague. Was a horse crazy little girl and teen and still am mesmerized by horses in general. Can't wait to see what you paint.
