Vicki's Roses

Well - I killed 2 birds with one stone today with today's painting. First of all I just managed to complete this painting before the witching hour of 12:00 midnight and secondly I completed one of the Watercolor Workshop projects.  This subject is the February project painting for Watercolor Workshop where the members all paint from the same photo.  The source photo was provided by Vicki Greene.  She has beautiful photographs of her flowers.  This painting is 11" x 8" and is painted on Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed 140 lb. watercolor paper.

Barbra Joan - we all need to hold each other's hands - we artists need to support each other - it is part of that creative thing we have going on as artists! We understand each other as others cannot!
Hugs to you!
