French Lady

The garden at our villa was absolutely full of roses, they were wonderful! And this was one of the blooms.


I love (as you may know by now) to break the background into shapes, simplify them, so the actual leaves (as they were in this painting) become geometric shapes, to play against the organic pink rose.

A playful painting..
