My New Project: Shabby Chic Roses Original Painting

I'm painting roses! I love painting roses . It took me a few tries before I figured out the secret to painting roses. I could still improve of course! This painting is pretty big: 24" x 48". It's the perfect size for putting over a bed.

I've only got a few roses on so far. I usually average 3 roses a day.

I think this painting will be loaded with a massive amount of roses, mostly pink.

I'll post more of the progress later this week. Just wanted to share what my paintings start off looking like!


  1. The roses are so pretty. You can almost smell them. I know your picture will be beautiful when you are done with it and I will be checking in to see how it is coming. My boss shut the company down today because of the blowing snow and bitter cold so I am blog reading and working on my Valentine tea towels. Take care

  2. Hey....great to hear from ya! Hope you had a nice holiday week. This is the first week back since Xmas Eve due to weather here. I don't know where the global warming is...we had the chilliest Summer in x number of years and now the longest cold snap in 3 years?!?!?
    Great job on the roses. Can't wait to see the finished piece.
