In the last few moments of Valentines Day here is a rose of promise. A symbol for the promise of a year filled with love. Buttery impasto semi- translucent paint gives this rose a soft yet powerful image. This is another painting which, contrary to the way it looks, took a long time and a lot of effort to paint.

I would love to paint this rose in a much larger size, 12" x 16" x 1.5" Gallery Wrap Canvas would be wonderful. What a pretty addition to a home or office. Is anyone out there game to request it for themselves or to give as a gift? It would make a wonderful Wedding, Birthday, Mother's Day, New Home, New Business or any other type gift. Three similar paintings would be amazing in a spa, or even above a sofa in a home. I'm happy to lay away a painting and set up a payment schedule.

Now to continue my free lessons on painting portraits, here are some videos on painting hair. This is to help those preparing for the "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge" Challenge. Submissions close in 3 weeks time on March 8th.
