For the Love of Roses

For the Love of Roses
8"x10" oil on linen, gallery wrap



A bit of a twist with this painting, I used one of my
hand painted porcelain pieces for the subject matter.
I have been a china painter for many years...about 16.
It's a very different medium from oil painting.
The china paint goes on in thin layers that have to be
fired in the kiln at about 1400*.
This rose bowl vase has about 10-12 firings.
It also has 24K gold on the feet and the top edge.
Thought it was kind of a fun idea with one of my last pink roses.
