"Double Betty" ............ oil ................ 48" x 24"
This painting will go into a 20th anniversary show at a local gallery (group show) where I had a couple of very successful shows a number of years ago. In more recent botanical work, I've been exploring the design and abstract qualities of flowers and plants. The 'Betty' in this canvas is the rose 'Betty Boop', from our rose-packed garden.
Because I clearly have too much time on my hands (?!?), I've started a garden blog, (in addition to the newly initiated cooking blog). I guess the spring weather has me feeling frisky and feeling like I can do it all (we'll see how long I can keep it up!). If you're a gardener or a rose lover, please feel free to lean over our back fence at The Intensive Urban Gardener.
