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.

My great art school teacher encouraged me to try for Fine arts diploma and attend university. A blink later I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer. Thought you just sketched frocks not have to draft patterns etc!!Both my father and teacher all but disowned me when I and decided painting faces (makeup) was my thing.
