Climbing Roses

This watercolor painting started out completely as a nonrepresentational abstract painting, but art being what it is, took on life of it's own. This was truly fun watching the painting come out of the white paper. The rock wall formed first, but I felt it was missing something, I thought about doing some zentangle patterns on it, but then I had the idea that it should have some roses, so after a quick search for a photo for reference, climb the wall they did.


  1. Oh, Deb, this is wonderful! I'm sorry I've been sort of missing, but hope to be around more now. Love the colors in this and the sharp foreground over the more misty background.

  2. This one is pretty and makes me think of Sleeping Beauty.
