Pink Roses on the Arbor

Pink Roses on the Arbor
Oil on canvas, 7x5
Loose Park, Kansas City, MO
Getting back to my comfortable roots today, I have pulled out my oils.  In preparation for the Door County trip, I dutifully scraped my palette and reloaded the paints.  I do this before leaving, because I only carry tiny tubes in my french easel - except for white.  Loose Park is one of my favorite places to paint, so picking a theme of comfort was a must on such a hectic day.  I found some canvas in my supplies, so I have taped it to a substrate for this painting and the next.  I rarely do this, but why not take advantage of all the surfaces I have?  This painting makes 565 in as many days.....not it is time for lunch :)
