Roses By North Light

12"x12" oil on deep cradled birch wood panel (sides painted, not necessary to frame, but of course you may if you prefer).

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin

I've learned to not always listen to the weatherman. They predicted it would rain all morning and begin to clear in the afternoon. I awoke to find it perfectly sunny and clear this morning, but I had cut these roses the night before. Of course I was determined to paint them. I had re-arranged a bit of furniture in the studio (which I have pretty much abandoned all summer and painted out-side) so I could have just the right natural light fall on them from my north-facing windows (which allows nice even light in all day). Then by afternoon, there came the pouring rains! Glad I didn't listen to that turned around forecast!

Roxanne: I think I saw this painting first on your FB page and I thought it was a David Hettinger painting. It's really really lovely and you are developing such a unique style!!! If you don't know who he is--please look him up. You will like. (:

Wow- thanks Diane. I was not familiar with his work/him. So of course I couldn't wait to google him & check out what he does- thanks for the introduction! Love his work- and his plein air work is just luscious!!
