Symbol of love, beauty and joy. I thought roses would make a perfect wedding gift for my friend. So I ran down to the local florist shop and picked out a few lovely pinks for a still life. Then it was a furious race to get them down on paper before they wilted. And though it doesn't smell as sweet as a vase of fresh roses, at least the painting will last a long, long time.

Thanks, Joan! I've just been researching the difference between different types of white paint ... for even brighter results.

I'm a representational painter enchanted by the unique qualities of watercolor. Sometimes oils, gouache, colored pencils and other media call to me too. I started this blog to share my work and ideas about making art. Sometimes I toss other things into the mix. Such as painters I love, and art books and exhibits that inspire me. Your comments are welcome. I'd love to hear from you!
