ME AND MY SHADOW, 8X8, OIL


I was in the mood to paint flowers and found some pretty roses at the market. I put it in a shadowbox and threw strong light on it to create the shadow. The vase is special to me as it was a gift from a dear friend. I thought a rose and heart would be appropriate for this time of the year.

Who knew a painting of a single rose in a vase could have SO much drama?!? Nice! -Don

A unique composition with the light on the table and wall directing my eye right to the rose. Now I'm "in the mood for love...."

Hi Carol, I think my comment got lost in the password meddle! If you find two, you can just publish one. I love the Old Master's feel of colourful darks and the great original idea of using the shadow as a positive shape!

Well done. Love the light and color work

I really like this Carol. The rose is bashful which is not often the case for roses.
Well done.

Last two are wonderful Carol! "Sensitive" red vs "sensual Big Red"...Pepper! Wonderful use of colour volume ... and edges!

Good Painting!
Regards,
Bruce
