Had to put this one into my blog.  Maybe I  had put this in ones before but wanted to share.  I gave this to my daughter and her husband.  Now they have another painting!! That was why I sent a small one!!

Reaching for the Rose

Not sure if I had put this one in before.  3.25" x 2.35"  watercolor.  I have not been working for Watercolor for some time.  Acrylic has been my thing the last few years.  Maybe I need to take on my watercolor again!!  The roses will be out and around quickly.  June is the big thing in Portland, OR.  The Rose Show is a big thing here.  I have been putting in my artwork in different shows but this year I do not think I will do that for some time.  Not sure.  Will see.  Mean while, have a great day everyone!!  Lets Paint!!

Quick painting!!  Painted quickly for about 35 minutes.
Acrylic  9" x 12" 

Just about got this painting done . Took another 30 minutes. Will work on it later.  Will add more detail and add a few dark areas.  Will take about 30 minutes.  So-------- the painting was finished in about 1 hour and  35 minutes. 

I started painting in January 1968.  So it took me about 42 years to finish one new painting in 1 hours, 35 minutes!!!  In my 42 years of painting, there is always the question------ "How long did it take you to paint
a  9" x 12"?"  Yup!! 42 years how to know how do it and one hour and 35 minutes to do it!!

Still want to touch a few places.  Will then put my name in there.
