Picket Fence Rose

"Picket Fence Rose"
24" x 24"
Oil on wrapped canvas
Close to the road on my way to somewhere is a home with a picket fence.  The straight white boards shoulder a tangle of greenery, dotted with oodles of fat, white roses. 

I layered cool blue shadows on the outer rim of this rose.  Then rubbed in a cool pink,  knowing that I'd glaze the furnace inside her belly with several yellows.  I kept the innermost petals pure permanent rose, like lipstick on her pouty lips.
