I just love artists that have the discipline to stop a drawing without working out every little detail. To me this has everything. Real, sketchy, charcoal markings mixed with rough and smooth pastel. A drawing or a painting? I saw an amazing Berthe Morisot at the Speed Art museum in Louisville and I looked her up and saw this. The hair is soft and muted, and contoured and that perfect nose. It seems almost monochromatic, using just a few colors.

3 Roses, Oil, 24 x 24
This is a painting I am donating to the Wrapped in Red Gala event
taking place on March 10, 2012 to benefit the American Red Cross - Louisville Area Chapter.
It is one of my favorites :)
