Roses (First Half)

8×8″ oil on canvas panel; contact the artist for purchase information.

The snow stopped falling these few recent days and the temperature has gone up outside. The smell of melting snow and wet earth makes the thoughts of Spring now possible. So as a switch from the snow scenes, I did the first layers of some warm toned roses. I brought it to near finish except for the the bold highlights that will bring the blooms out and a few more accents and details.
