Heart of the Rose

Heart of the Rose Oil on primed archival paper, 24 x 18”, 2010
I haven’t touched oil paints and a brush for ten years and I didn’t remember how sensual oils were. This piece turned out a bit more O’Keefeish than intended. The work is a start - or more a reacquainting. I’m not sure I like painting on paper - the response is definitely not the same as a brush on canvas - however, the votes aren’t in yet and there’s certainly time to explore the possibilities.
