A Trail of Roses

Finally!  This one I am keeping.  I have painted this Mary Jo Leisure design at least 3 times, and each time I have given it away, but this one goes on my sofa table.  It is a stand-alone painting on wood, trimmed with gold leaf, which has a receptacle attached on the back side in which I can arrange some greenery or some filler flowers.  I am getting ready to decorate for Spring!  Countdown.....11 days!

You paint the prettiest stroke roses. I just watched one of your old videos on stroke roses yesterday. Now I have to loan it to my friend so she can see what a great job you do. Pretty, pretty!!

Thank you for the compliment! I love painting roses. They are my favorite painting subject. They are always challenging and tire of painting them.
