White garden roses

White garden roses (8″ x 8″ oil on raised panel)

I do love flowers in their natural setting more than those in a vase. This is a study in white playing with the warm and cool tones to give a natural play of light and shadow on the petals.

Tom wrote a haiku for this one that captures the essence of the moment.

delicate scent wafts
petals open to the sun
summer afternoon

  1. I must say, you are a master of the floral and the play of the many values and shadows. Every time I see one of your floral paintings, it’s as if you have such a connection with them, that you are able to give them a voice …and they sing! Lovely.
