Berthe Morisot Drawing - allow me...

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 and a donation

3 Roses,  Oil,  24 x 24

This is a painting I am donating to the Wrapped in Red Gala event

It is one of my favorites :)
