72 - Peach Rose

This is a larger one 22"x28". I just love painting roses! Clearly not enough time to paint them all but I intend to make a go of it. The large size of this one did make the process seam longer where I had to keep getting up and standing back and looking because it was too big to see it clearly up close. I painted it in oils with lots and lots of thin glazes. I rather like how it turned out.

71 - Great Grey Owl

This one changed at the last minute. I thought I had it done, then I took a picture, and when I did, the light changed part of the background. I REALLY liked what it did so I tried to duplicate it, and this is the background I ended up with when I was done. I like it.

70- Cardinal In The Snow

For my new years resolution I've decided to take my art more seriously. When I say that I mean more accurately, dont take it for granted. I need to create. I need to paint. I feel alive and happy when I paint. I've decided to stop putting others needs first for a while in the hopes that if I take the time for me, I'll have more to give.

This is a small one. 8" x 10" oil on canvas. I wish I took better photos.
