Are your roses blooming yet?

I have a friend who lives in France who paints the most beautiful flowers and she tells me her roses are blooming now.  

This small little rose painting is no where near the beauty that she paints, but I thought she might appreciate seeing that I am thinking of her and her beautiful paintings.

3 1/2" x 3 1/2"  oil on wood block

    Thank you Nancy for thinking of me !
    According to the small size of your painting I do think the rose is well painted.
    I experienced that the yellow color is the most difficult color to work either in oil or watercolor. You did well.
    Have a nice day and thank you again.

  2. Yes, roses are blooming here. I just painted (very, very abstractly) some lovely pale pink old-fashioned ones. I really like your yellow rose. It glows!

  3. is that wood block somehow "rounded"? Love the lovely yellows you achieved!

  4. Some of my roses are finally blooming now. Some are not doing so well as I hoped. But I already got some good for future rose paintings. You did a great job with your small yellow rose. Especially painting them in so small in not easy. I like it. Happy Painting!
