Red Rose - SOLD

"Red Rose", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Canvas Board"
Do I dare post this? Any notion of perfection has gone. It is raw and not trying to be anything--abstract, realistic--neither. My neighbor told me that it is actually getting lighter now earlier in the evening, though the solstice is not until the 22nd. He also said that the morning would continue to get darker until early January.


  1. This one is special. I would not sell it - at least for now.

  2. Kathryn, don't know where you are going in your painting but the play of colors against each other are fabulous in this one. Keep going, you're on to something and I love it!
