Original Oil Painting of White Roses and Cut Apples with a Green Glass Vase, 9" x 12"

"Roses with Cut Apples"SOLD

I just purchased some oil primed linen and couldn't resist using some for this small painting. I just love the way the paint lays on and the soft look you can get so easily. What surprised me, however, is how easily wet paint lifts off the linen! This made for some surpising effects also. There is a problem with photographing it, however, because it picks up and scatters light differently than canvas or straight board. I'll have to practice photographing the stuff. This was my fifth try! Best I could do under my limited light set up, though. Here's a detail shot. myself a new green glass vase too!
