Passionate Rose, Original Oil Painting (fresh off the easel)

Passionate Rose Oil Painting on a 16 by 20 inch gallery wrap canvas with edges painted.

I finished this one last week and have been waiting for it to dry and get some good pictures for printing.  The one at left was taken with the paint still a little wet and shiny.  The one on the right (taken later) has less glare and more suitable for printing. I am still experimenting with exposure and lighting to get a better shot to show the dark rich greens in the background.  I have another rose painting on the easel now that is more colorful than this one.  It has been cold and wet so oil paintings are taking longer to dry.

I will put a matte finish on the painting to even out the tone and dull the shiny spots.  This one is still a work-in-progress until the clear top coat finish is on it.

Hope you like the Passionate Rose,
