I needed a new challenge, so decided to paint a white rose. I cannot remember painting rose petals before, at least not in close up detail as in this painting. So this was my first rose painting. Actually it’s my second start, since about half way through the first beginning I realized the feeling wasn’t what I wanted so I made some adjustments to the way I was working and started over. Here you can see the results. It surprised even me to realize after painting for so many years this was my first painting of this subject. There is always something new to learn.
