A Rosy Giveaway

English Roses Still Life, 5"x6" Oil on Linen Panel 
For several years now, I've been a huge fan of My French Country Home blog. I take much delight from its photos of lovely decorative vignettes that inspire me, not just in the way I place items around my home, but in the colors I use in my still life paintings.
The fortune has been all mine that the author of My French Country Home will be posting my first giveaway on her blog. The giveaway will be the painting of the English roses above. Please, visit her blog for the details. I take advance of every blossom that I get in this heat and can't wait for October, which my roses bushes seem to love.

  5. Thank you so much for the lovely comments. Please, visit again. Now that things are starting to settle down at school (I'm a middle school Spanish teacher) I will have a bit more time to paint.

  6. The roses are beautiful. I was at the "My French Country Home" blog when I saw your painting. What a surprise to find you are in Edmond. I live in Mustang, OK and I am trying to decorate in french country. This is a new home for us as we lost our home in the wildfires five years ago in Mustang. Again, your art is beautiful. Jane

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around.
