Roses: Pink or Yellow


Both of these paintings are ACEOs, painted in Acrylic

Its funny, neither painting started out with the idea to grow up into a still life of roses. It just sort of happened. I read a quote by Richard Schmidt that sums it up:

"There are times when I have started a work with an end in mind, but then, for one reason or another, as my picture unfolded, it emphatically suggested another direction... I always accept the risk and go for it. I'm convinced that at such times my painting is wiser than I am." (Richard Schmid)

Both are really beautiful. One might say the happenstance was fortuitous.
