Red Rose Keepsake

Red Rose Keepsake, 8x10 oil on canvas, bid on eBay
Again, another attempt at roses. This time I got smart and purchased some beautiful silk flowers at the local florist shop. My last red roses didnt even open so I had to find a more economical solution if I'm going to perfect these. These silks are fabulous! The buds and flowers are really lifelike. The leaves, not so much. I have to do some improvising there but as I like to say, " How do we eat an elephant? One bite at a time..." :)
