White Rose Study and Latest Mug Study

White Rose Study/ oil on board/ 4" x 4"/ gifted

This is day 16 of Leslie Saeta's Thirty in Thirty Challenge (link.)
My theme for this was color so I decided to paint a white rose and play up the warm and cools colors that would "form" the rose.

In addition,  I am behind in my "mug commitment". The Hilton Head Artists from Karin Jurick's (link) class (also check Karin's new blog) agreed to paint "mug shots" of each other weekly. We deliberately looked like we had been arrested: unhappy, guilty, etc to allow each of us to not feel like we had to produce a beautiful portrait.  I will post my latest below (Down one: three? to go?). It was promised that practice like this improves one's ability...

She looks pretty complacent about her "arrest", don't you think?


  1. Nice! Your colors reach out beautifully and capture us.

  2. Thank you, Marilyn. You are so good with colors and feelings, I really appreciate your comment.
