Spring's Eternal Bouquet

10x10, oil on canvas
Tired of roses yet?  I hope not, because I'm hopelessly smitten by the challenge of painting their subtle value changes, slight color differences, and variety of shapes and personalities that makes each one uniquely beautiful. The art of learning to really SEE. All good stuff. 

"Life stands before me 
like an eternal spring
 with new and brilliant clothes." 
Carl Friedrich Gauss

iThat's such a gorgeous palette! It's like soft breath of air on a still day... So delicate and yet so expressive... I love it! The poetry is beautiful too, a wonderful thought!

I'm lovin' the new softness to your work lately.
No, I'm not tired of roses ... bring them on!
