Day 7 - 30 Day Challenge

The Rose
Oil  6x6
 
Day 7 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Day Challenge--week one finished and I'm still excited and hoping to maintain my momentum.  Check out Leslie's blog at www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com .  She has 400 artists participating and you can see thumbnails of all the paintings being posted.  Of course, you can click on those to go to that person's blog or website to view more.  If you're not already on my email  list, be sure and sign up to receive each new painting as they are posted.
 

The romantic red rose!  Shame on me, I've been hesitant to paint roses because of the complex petals, but this one caught my eye because of the beautiful back lighting.  I am pleased with the way it turned out.  I'm ready to try another one. 

Hope you're having a great weekend!

  3. This backlit rose is gorgeous! I just talked about backlit lighting in my post for day 7, too. We're all making the same decisions one way or another. Nice having this connection! Looking forward to more roses.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments! Looking at other artists' blogs that have posted on Leslie's blog is always so much fun. Unfortunately, this time I've not been able to work that in, so I'm looking forward to doing that soon.
