Pax Rosa

The Peace Rose has been following me for the past several years. In most of the homes I’ve rented in this time, whether in Southern Oregon, the Oregon coast or New Mexico, this rose has been growing in the backyard!

Grayscale Flowers

New work – just varnished it today.  I used Van Dyck Brown and Cremnitz white for these paintings and may I just say what a delicious combo that is (not literally – cremnitz is lead and that is poison).  Filed under: Flowers, painting, Paintings, Still Life Tagged: 2014, art, fine art, floral, flowers, oil, oil […]
