March 7 - Cream Roses

"Friend's Roses" Returning to the studio laden with the generosity for which she is well known, Joan knew I had planned to paint roses, and in she comes with these wonderful yellowy cream blossoms.
The original oil is 20 x 16, and was done from a small set up with the roses in a vase that my folks received as a wedding gift back in 1942. I will always look at them seeing more than just the colors and brush strokes, and even though they may leave my life to adorn the walls of a collector's home, I still know a part of me is in the painting. $300
