The Alexandra Rose 2

The Alexandra Rose 2. Oil on Gessoboard. 5 x 7.

This is The Alexandra Rose, a single rose that grows in small and elegant clusters in a very shady area of my garden. The flowers are edged in copper with a yellow center when they open, but quickly fade to a sweet pink.

I had a full weekend of painting, which is good because I have to report for Jury Duty this week.

I've packed a sketchbook, pencils, my iPhone and a book. I have the Brushes app on my iPhone and have seen interesting work by artists recently using that app. If they turn out, I'll post them.
