Work in progress - "White Roses"

18"x24", oil on canvas.

This is not exactly a small study, I've been working on this one every day for a week and a half (I'm surprised the roses lasted this long!). I'm getting close to being done.

It feels like the painting needs some strong horizontal element, maybe the edge of the table where it meets the wall needs more definition. On the other hand, I'm curious if I can pull it off without such an obvious solution. Now I have to wait for the paint to dry before I continue, so there is time to think about it...

With that, I'm done for the day. I have a show opening tonight at The Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d'Alene - "New Work by 12 Artists".
