Pretty Pink Bouquet of Ruffly Roses

Went to the Studio to paint this week, so I have something for Paint Party Friday. It was pouring rain which means, I couldn't get anything from the garden. It was just too wet and muddy. When will this rain ever stop? It's seems like it's been flooding forever here in New Jersey. I stopped by the grocery store instead and they had these gorgeous pink roses on clearance. They called me to paint their picture. I painted using watercolors in my new  large scale  format 22"x30", I am so loving the large size. Please forgive me for the blurry photos, just couldn't get enough light on this gloomy day.There's a photo of the rose inspiration and where they sit in our living room.

Hope you'll see something pretty this week.
take care, gerri

    BTW, can you please link to your POST rather than to your blog so PPFers can come directly to the right post? Thank you!
