Day 7 - Roses Are Red

Roses are Red, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", $50
Day 7 of the 30 Day Challenge

This painting kind of got away from me. I started out with a warm yellow-tan background and started adding the red-orange shapes. They almost instantaneously turned into flowers. So I decided to let them be. Then I added the stems and green pattern to finish up. I'm discovering what many of you already know - abstraction is really hard; we have an amazing ability to turn every mark into "something".

Beautiful clean palette - great horizontals to offset the verticals. Nice one!!
