Paint Party Friday- May 20,2011

It's Paint Party Friday again and I'm so happy to say I'm almost done with my rose!  It's getting to that point where I'm REALLY ready to move on to something new, but I know myself, and I know if I don't finish it before starting something else, it will stay unfinished!
So, here it is:
Really I just want to do a little tightening here and there and touch up the yellows on the petal- it doesn't quite GLOW like I want it to......all in good time :)
I included this image just because I thought the reflection was kind of cool....
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and be sure to stop by Paint Party Friday to see what everyone else has been up to- I'm always amazed and inspired by all the incredible work there!
Stephanie

Your rose is beautiful and I especially love the reflection. It looks like a water lily to me. I can visualize it sitting in a beautiful pond near the rose.

Stpehanie...your rose turned out spectacular!! Of course, I knew it would. I adore all of your work. I think you must have been a Garden fae in another life. So wonderful at painting flowers and bringing them to life on the canvas. I really like the way you enhanced the photo of it. Looks vintage.

Happy Friday Hugs!!

I just love your style Stephanie. I can almost smell the sweet fragrance of your rose. The painting is as delicate as the rose. Very beautiful. Happy PPF! :-)

I really love how you paint flowers. It is your unique way and it is beautiful. I can alsmot smell that delicate scent of this rose and see how it gently moves in the wind.

I love the reflection too, and I so agree with having to stick with it or you'll never finish. I have soooo many incomplete items because i get distracted half way through with some great new project.
