Bucket Bouquet 8 x 10 – A small study in preparation for larger pieces.

Summer for me is a time of catch-up. I focus on large studio paintings when it’s too hot to move outside. This year, I’ve been working on painting exuberant flowers in simple vases. Some large, some small. The new botanical series is destined to go off to my galleries.

My grandmother had a rose garden, and sweet memories of her big roses still bring bright smiles to my heart. Who doesn’t love a rose?
