Wild White Rose

"Wild White Rose"
12" x 12"
Oil on wrapped canvas
In the midst of the ruffled-sunset colors of the rose garden at the Chicago Botanic Gardens stands a cluster of basic Wild White Roses.

I photographed this rose while thinking, I'll never paint this plain ol' rose... but her shadows are nice. Yet, here she is. The stamens and their shadows were quite an exercise for a new oil painter.

This painting is listed with, and for purchase on a Dailypaintworks.com auction.  Please see it in my gallery there, too.
