This is a local ditch bank in Corrales, New Mexico with the Sandia Mountains in the background.
I’m learning to paint roses.
This is version number 4 of 5. Long story. I painted lots of these and ready to move on. This painting is 16 x 20 inches, oil on canvas.
This painting was inspired by Nancy Medina. I get access to a lesson every month for a year from her. I am really enjoying it so far. She is a serious flower lover. Of course I was excited that the first one was sunflowers, but lesson two was peonies and those are pretty fun. When I get the hang of those, I hope to post some!
More experimenting with salt, but this time I used crackle paste as well. I like it. I have not decided if I am going to paint an actual picture on this yet.

Just shaggy yellow sunflowers. I think I see a heart.
