Complimentary colors can really make a painting dramatic! I love the way this one came together. I used watercolor paper, put a varnish medium on it, applied an under-painting, then started to draw the rose leaving some of the under-painting showing. That's why there is so much texture.

I've been painting bigger pieces but still painting fruits! These gala apples are big and dramatic. this piece will go into the Kensington Labor Day show - the three day show at the downtown armory or town hall in Kensington, MD.
Living in Derwood, Maryland, with my wonderful husband, two great kids (adults) and our rambuctious dog, Maggie. I try to paint everyday but of course life happens and that is not always possible. Sitting in front of the easel with brushes in hand is my meditation. I'm engrossed in my tiny world creating what I want. I welcome any and all comments.
