Atumnal Roses, 12x16
Since its nice to paint with company, a group of us get together on Thursdays to work from a model or sometimes a still life. Walking to the studio on probably one of our last sunny somewhat warm days I spied these flowers hanging over the lawn.....and that was it for me. I couldn't bring myself to go inside and instead sat in the lawn with a winter coat on. Remember, I said 'somewhat warm'......but I exagerrated.
When the roses were finished....(OK, 'when I was finished' as the roses are still going on with their thing) I moved inside and found a surly crowd grumbling mightily about the still life I had set up......but I'll save that story for a later post.
I'll be back in a couple of days.
