"Distressed" --- SOLD

Let me just state for the record that roses are tough to paint (if you want a challenge, paint a rose). I tried a million compositions before I found this one. The shadow really spoke to me, and the color of the rose against this background. This evening I stamped more fabric. I still haven't tackled the batik, even though I have all the materials. I have to admit - I'm a bit daunted by it. I know once I get started I'll be fine ... but it's the getting started I'm having trouble doing. : )

seriously carol, could you make painting roses look any easier?? LOL....makes me want to try, but i know better...this is a fabulous painting, love the shadow! but you really simplified how to tackle a rose with your ever precise brushstrokes...the 'batteries' must be dead in my paintbrushes, they don't seem to work like yours! :)
