"Rose in a Shot Glass"  Original oil painting  Unframed  6" X 6"
For purchase information, please contact me at:

Mike brought me this little Don Juan rose early in the week and it has been sitting on my desk in a shot glass.  I have watched it deteriorate until it languished over the side of the glass and gently kissed it.  I am not fond of painting flowers, but I sooooo admire those who do it well.  I couldn't resist this little droopy bloom, especially since I butchered its mother plant this week while doing some yard clean up.  I am a notorious "slash to grow" pruner, so I now have to wait until spring for new blossoms.

Aren't you proud of me??  The January challenge is over and I am still keeping the blogging habit as much as I can!  I do have larger works to paint in the near future, so be prepared for me to skip now and then but I will do all I can to continue more often than before.

I REALLY like this, Debra. The droop of the bloom makes this intriguing, and I absolutely love the way you have painted the underside of the rose!
