I painted this antique ceiling tin 3 years ago and it has since, flown on its way to a new owner and is now happily living in Korea. The roses and background were painted in oils and the roses were created from ones that were growing in my garden at the time.
I can happily say that I've got my artistic time planned out for the rest of the whole winter, til April 1st actually. Wanting more time for a couple of watercolors and perhaps a couple of ceiling tin pieces that I've got stowed away in the basement waiting for me to paint them, I've decided to put aside some of my decorative commission work for the winter. It will give me time to work on the above mentioned and maybe some other things I have in mind also. I'm really excited about it actually, brimming with excitement, more so then I've been in a while. I also have some fun ideas I would like to try, maybe oils on watercolor backgrounds, you name it, I've got some design ideas , ready to be created this winter. These are things I really want to paint but just don't have the time to do anymore with the steady flow or orders that seem to always come in. I'm definitely in a rose mood and that theme will probably be at the center of some of the new creations. I'll be showing them here on my blog, so stay tuned.
