Here's my submission to this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. The DPW Challenge has added another level of engagement with my daily paintings and it has been fun to see all the different artists interpretations.
I knew this week's challenge would have something to do with Valentine's Day, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed that it was a ubiquitous red rose. My personal challenge was to try to elevate it above the mundane via the use of my textural technique and some unexpected coloring, while keeping to my preference for realism.
How did I do?
