Roses and Ribbons

"Roses and Ribbons"  
8x10 oil on gessoed board


I love to paint ribbons for some reason.  I think it's because they pick up so much light and different colors from the objects around them.  Also they are a great way of connecting things in your painting making for a better composition besides just adding interest.  I grew these roses in my yard which I think are the best because they are more relaxed than the roses you find in grocery stores.

Thank you for viewing my work!
