"Red, Red Roses" Painting

Here's another Valentine's Day-inspired painting. I started this one during my Loudoun Academy of the Arts still life class last Thursday and finished it up this afternoon. It's really a loose sketch, and the roses were looking a little worse off due to their multiple trips -- to the Leesburg class and home, and then to my studio (the Artists' Atelier, 1144 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA) today. Roses are fairly new subjects for me. A new challenge!
