Thank you, Marjie, for that great comment. Actually the roses were done in soluble oils, then I used watercolor pencil for the printing on the label. These paints act a lot like watercolors though. Warm regards, Netta

I love this Netta - your roses are truly lovely , especially it reminds me how my nan used to pick roses from her garden and sometimes, when she had too many for the vase, the extras went in a jam jar on the kitchen windowsill ! hugs x Leonora

Artist Statement
for Netta Pickering
Netta PickeringOriginally from Northern Ireland, I came to America in 1956.
I have been drawing since I was a child, maybe eight or nine years old.
I have had no formal training of any kind other than in high school. I have painted in oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels,
I appreciate all the kind comments from so many wonderful artists on PIL.
I find that at the moment I seem to be painting a lot of different subjects, anybody else have this problem ? if it is a problem !!. LOL.
There's a marvellous atmosheric beauty here that generates a peaceful feeling, as if one is actually there! So very well done! I don't think it's a problem... view answer
