Happy Friday!

Here is a flower to brighten your day.  It's watercolor on 140 lb Arches and I used some of my quinacridone colors because I'm in love with them:)

I love your rose, it's beautiful! The quinacridone colors are some of my favorite colors too! I use the burnt orange, I think it is, a lot.

Candy said...

Thanks, Deb! I like the burnt orange, too.

It is gorgeous, Candy!! Something so innocent and so beautiful about roses to my mind.

Also, I hadn't heard of Barbara Cook. 84 and still singing and doing shows? Amazing!

Je m'aperçois que vous êtes aussi passionnée par les roses !... Une très jolie oeuvre que la peinture de cette merveilleuse fleur.
Gros bisous à vous.

Candy said...

Hi Candy!

What a beautiful rose. Such yummy pinks. Hope you've had a good summer and are enjoying fall. What is the temp like in your area this time of the year?

Candy said...

Thanks, Teresa! This is my favorite time of year here. The weather is gorgeous. It rained today, but it will be sunny this weekend and the temperature will be in the eighties. I don't mind the rain because we really need it. The air is always so fresh afterward and the desert smells wonderful.

Ciao Candy,
molto bella la tua rosa! Cattura lo
sguardo e affascina!
Strani fiori le rose: hanno una maestosità che a volte mette a disagio e altre volte ti conquista!
Questo è il caso della tua!
Ciao, ciao,buon 2013, Floriana
