In acknowledgment of Valentine’s Day this month, I painted candy Sweet Tarts. I like painting reflections for added interest. However, I’ve decided painting on small 6x6 and 5x7” hardboards are not the best for what I want to accomplish. I’m going to change back to 8x10” linen boards, it’s an extra expense for me but worth it, I feel.
My Valentine’s Day was topped off with my 33-year-old son bringing me a dozen white roses. I took many photos of them so there could be a white rose painting in the works. I like to paint from real life but also from photos if real life has wilted.
Oil on board
