Roses with Teapot

"Roses with Teapot", 16 x 12 In, Oil on Panel
I am so loving getting out on the back deck for these still lifes. I have big skylights in my studio, but that doesn't compare to direct sunlight and a warm breeze.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. Kathryn this is beautiful! I love the softness and the palette. So dreamy... My advice: keep getting on the back deck!

  2. The flowers are beautiful! Wonderful composition and just feel your joy in painting this. Keep it up!

  3. Thank you Susan and Kathy for your comments! I'm on my way to an Ovanes Berberian workshop, so will be doing more outdoor still lifes, though they will be learning exercises!
