Lady Banks Roses

This is another Lady Banks study. I had prepared a larger canvas to do this idea on it and this was to be my quick study.  The blooms were wilting quick even though fresh cut and with water. You can really see the difference in my previous study, the flowers were much more perky.  I went outside for another branch and found they were all going. Sigh. So I took this study a little further and will wait for next spring.

3 1/2" x 11 3/4 ", oil on gessoed mat board (sold)


  1. I like the dimensions. The cloth on the glossy wood gives a really interesting surface. I kind of like that the flowers are wilting. They look like they've tumped out of a vase.

  2. Thanks Shannon, I kind of like them wilting too even though that's not what I had planned.
