Rosey Pose

An experiment in painting flowers. My teacher and friend Kevin, was it seems determined for me to paint that carnation today! I took it out of the compostion a couple of times but it ended up right back in there.
10x8 inch on gesso bord

Also...
I forgot yesterday to show you some of the splendor of the kingdom of Kerry. This photo was taken at Ross Castle but really doesn't do the scene much justice I'm afraid. It felt a bit like where my sister lives in the okanagan valley in BC Canada.

Love this one! Beautiful light and composition. The flowers are gestural and feel so natural.
