Peace roses by Margaret

Peace roses

oil on canvas. This is my flower stage. I seem to paint in stages.I really love capturing roses..the colours in the petals facinate me. Not my normal colour range and was going to 'gift' it but it now lives with me.

How could this be any more beautiful? I can almost feel the velvety touch of those petals.

Belated thank you Lyn! My mother had these roses and I loved them. I have framed them in a mirrored frame and they now live in my house to remind me of her. M :)
