"I'm So Glad"

I did this small painting for a group I belong to, Aquanet, for a theme called
"Close Up". Don't worry, I will finish the rose one soon, but this was kind of
urgent to finish.

This one is about 8" x 10" on Arches 140 lb. cold press bright white paper.

It was growing in my garden, and this represents what I did with one of
the photographs I took. I was standing with the sun coming over my shoulder,
I put the glad on my deck floor, stood on the steps and photographed it.
That is why the shadow is above it instead of below it.

Comments and Critiques always welcome!

Variegated Roses - WIP

Here's what I'm working on right now. This is a huge challenge because these roses are variegated in color! This is from a photo I took of my neighbor's garden last year. Stay tuned!
