 Scottsdale Blush of Roses
10.5 x 8.5 
oil on panel
Available on Daily Paintworks

Scottsdale, fourth Day:  Daniel Keyes loves flowers. He told us the story 
of how, when his parents would allow each of their children to select something
 to purchase, he would ask for a flower.  This love for blooms is evident in his paintings
Our third demonstration was  painting roses.  I finally got the fact 
through my head that one can blend the oil paint on the painting, instead of
 trying to mix it all on the palette.  This allows for the soft edges and lovely 
blurs of  reflected light.  Really enjoyed painting this one and makes 
me wish I had planted more roses in my garden.
