White Rose

Here's a small white rose that I painted for the latest SWAP. I like painting white flowers - they always pop against a dark background, and it's a challenge to paint the shadows, keep them colorful and yet still make them look "white".

Rings Around the Roses

I painted this abstract with a little help from Kay Smith Kay had recently taken a workshop with Karlyn Holman, and had posted one of her workshop paintings on WetCanvas. I liked it and asked a lot of questions, and Kay sort of guided me through the process that she used. I had a lot of fun and will definitely try this again.
