Stop and Smell the Roses

Stop and Smell the Roses, pastel, 9x12", SOLD

I took the photo reference for this painting on a overcast day at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon. I love the soft lighting and the complementary colors that glow, but still convey a sense of peacefulness.


  1. Mary, this is really gorgeous. I love how soft yet colorful it is, and the sense of volume you were able to achieve. :)

  2. wow you really fooled me......thats what i love about realism!! I wish i could do us how!!
