"There is an undeniable urgency when painting outdoors - nature's so grand, the canvas so small. It takes the human mind with all its grand abilities and complexities to sort through the overwhelming visual feast set before it and re-create on canvas the essential components of such beauty and wonder"...Jan Blencowe

Thanks, Paz--the roses seemed to pick up every color around them. Pretty cool thing about painting outside and seeing that happen, I think.

I'm with Paz! Great colors and I love the angular brush strokes.

This is a very strong piece Faye. All of the flowers that you have been painting plein air have been great.
