It's been crazy busy in my studio which is always a good thing but, I haven't been able to keep up with visiting blogs or posting on my blog. So I'm posting an almost finished painting. I'm still tackling florals. (I also need to tackle documenting them accurately with my digital camera.) These large old fashion roses have a lot of transmitted light through their petals and getting them just right in oils is a huge challenge.
Thank you for all the nice birthday wishes. They helped make me realize it's no big deal particularly when you get to spend your days with a brush in your hands.

Hi Susan,

What a magnificent painting. I love the beautiful glow. You have a wonderful way of capturing the light, truly a great piece.

This is so very sensitively painted Susan, what beautiful value shifts... very lovely.
