A Rose for Valentine's

This is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks challenge.  Qiang Huang challenged everyone to paint a rose, and there are so many great entries.  If you haven't had a chance to visit the DPW site, please do.  The site features some of my favorite artists, and the challenge pages are interesting, too.

Excellent job on this rose, and wonderful highlights. I also like the way you handled the background.

Hi Linda! Thank you. The challenge photograph was fun to paint. Qiang did a great job with it. I would love to take one of his workshops and learn his flower painting techniques. He is awesome. :)

Darla- so like your 10 min. challenge apples.
I don't know if I mastered the art of blog production, but if so..... my site is karendhedges.blogspot.com\
Many of us have or are now trying to get a blog going!
Hope you're feeling much better,
