Roses


Roses 2, 43 x 24 cm

Roses 1, 23 x 33 cm
I needed some inspiration to start painting after a couple of weeks break and I found it in Jean Haines' roses. So I cut a few roses from the garden and rolled up my sleeves...

Roses are always inspiring, though not easy to paint. These are great, Blaga, I like both paintings!

Hello Blaga!How beautiful pick roses from your own garden and depict them!

The freshness of these roses is touching for me
!Have nice week!

Tito said...

Beautiful roses Blaga. To me, the second one is really gorgeous. Have a good week! Ciao!

Jane said...

I wish I could paint roses like that just by rolling up my sleeves:-))) Fresh and fabulous !

Blaga said...

You are right, Judy, roses can be tricky. You have to try hard to not look at the details. Thank you!

It is much fun to paint flowers from the garden Rita. I'm trying another one that you'll see soon. Thank you!

Thank you, Tito! Glad you like them.

Ha-ha, I like your sense of humour, Jane!

Dear Blaga,
Both paintings are lovely! Your good work, particularly, the first one inspires me.
Regarding my uploaded work, I just did relax myself and weighed on "value." I'm learning a lot from you.
Kind regards, Sadami

Hi Blaga! Two different styles/moods, but two equally lovely floral paintings.

You're so kind, Sadami, and you're flattering me. I so look up to you!

Muchas gracias, Sonia!

Thank you so much, Renate!

Hi, Cathy! Thanks for stopping by! I like the sunflowers too and have been contemplating painting that composition again with brighter colors... will see...

Thank you, Michael, I'm very glad you like them!
