Mothers' Day Roses

I received two lovely floral bouquets this Mothers' Day, and started paintings of them from life that day.  I got a good start on both of them, but did not complete them before the flowers wilted and died.  I worked on them from time to time, and finished this one on Thursday during my painting group.   I really enjoyed painting these lovely deep red roses.

Mickey - I like the way this one came out too. This way the bouquets last a little longer. lol
