White Rose, Wilting- still life, oil on canvas board, 8x10
My first daily painting. It took me a few days to get started. Of course, I had a lot of excuses- the light isn't right, I need to do the laundry, I don't know what to paint- and the list goes on! What I finally decided on as a subject is a drying, wilting white rose on my windowsill. There is a long story behind white roses that I might share in a later post, but for now- just know that I think it was a fitting and appropriate subject for my first painting posted on this blog. Still life, oil, 8 x 10. Go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/OliveandAsh to purchase.
I'm really trying to stay loose, paint quickly and play with the color. Now, to start thinking about tomorrow's subject.
