Pink Rose

An oil sketch done in about 20 to 30 minutes. The time is only important in regards to not overworking it. I (anyone does) can have a tendency to not stop when the feel of a painting looks right and 'ruin" it.
This (and the ones I'm doing this week) are meant to be studies.

Lemon Tree?

Well I finished this a couple weeks ago, but I'm not sure the title is right now. I had to to leave it since I entered it in a competition with that title. Now, it seems very feminine and almost like an aging woman. Someone else pointed that out to me. Sometimes things happen in a painting that the painter isn't fully conscious of. I actually like that. Sometimes.
