"Love Letter" --- SOLD



I just used these roses and letter in a larger painting yesterday and liked them so much I thought I'd do a smaller one with them only. The image is a bit sappy, and anyone who knows me will say this is out of character for me : ) but it was fun to paint - I enjoyed the challenge of the dramatic contrast between the letter and background.

Beautiful brushwork on the flowers!

Nothing wrong with the occasional sappy, so long as you don't make a habit of it. :)

This is gorgeous, BTW.

Looks like a narrative, there could certainly be a good story behind this piece.
