Climbing the petal

oil on canvas
8" x 8" (20 x 20 cm)

This is a night painting and I did it half-sleepy before I rest for an early awakening.  But this lady wanted to climb the petal and we struggled together to reach our goals: her petal top, my warm bed.

The rose of many colors

oil on canvas
9,6" x 7,2" (18 x 24 cm)

Some paintings just don't want to get painted, this one was one of them.  Some times I was wondering if the universe didn't want me to finish it and some others that the rose was too selfish and demanding.  But, in the end, I think that both of us, the rose and me, were happy with my insistency to finish the race no matter what.
The reference is from the beautiful photo of Suzanne Wallick.

The new yellow

oil on canvas painted all around
10" x 12" (25 x 30 cm)

This is much bigger than the ones I do lately and it took me some time.  It's a micro of a yellow rose with a bug.  It's a painting I was waiting to do and it is going to enter a micro competition. 
It's based on a photo of Chuck Krejcsi with my colors and way of seeing.
