Just for Fun!
Just for Fun! 8 x 8 Oil Painting
I've been working on a complicated painting of a Venice canal scene for the past 2 weeks. I keep making revisions and I think I'm close to done but wanted to give it a break before coming back to look at it with fresh eyes in a few days. In the meantime, after taking it as far as I could this morning, I was ready to paint something easy, just for fun. In honor of Valentine's Day, I did these roses. This painting is not for sale since the reference photo that inspired it was not one I took myself, but it was a fun and freeing exercise to get back to painting something happy and expressive without worrying about straight lines and perspective.
Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day with the people you love doing the things that bring you joy!
