Sngle Pink Rose Glass Jar on Gray SOLD

This painting was painted before the previous entry, but it had a very unsuccessful pink background behind the rose and jar.  The painting was just pink everywhere -screaming, unsubtle pink.  After I painted the two roses I went back and subdued the background in this painting.  Suddenly the pink rose was delicate and the painting was balanced between a very large area of neutral color and a very small area of bright saturated color.
