7 1/2" x 6"
Trial run painting a rose for a friend. Inspired by a "Fire & Ice" rose photograph, I thought it still turned out pretty. And I had a good time being in the moment, as once I reached the point of no return, I was slapping on more paint, trying to oomp up the values and playing with the background colors and washes. There is a certain freedom in that. No such thing as mistakes, only detours along the way.
(And a special thank you to the patient Apple Support guy helping me figure out the new Photos app with the recent Yosemite Mac update...)
