SOLD
16X12
Oil on Archival Panel



Heat of the Night White Roses is my fourth painting for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge by Leslie Saeta. I was watching one of my favorite sci-fi movies on global warming while painting these roses, so was inspired to infuse a bit of orange into the background. The fans are going full blast here in the studio, since we are under a heat advisory in North Texas again today. I'm a bit baffled by my garden. Normally a cool weather flower, the morning glories are in full and glorious bloom. I've shared a photo of my garden with you today, along with a little back yard angel who watches over us.



The studio models take a bow!




My morning glories, braving the heat this morning!

Gorgeous white roses, my favorite of all the roses. Nancy, I just wish I could paint a 16th as well. Do love those morning glories! And they bring to mind cool mornings, opening to the sunshine.

Thanks so much Jim! I finished it in 3 hours - Although listening to movies about the destruction of the world probably isn't the best way to create a floral painting. :)

Thanks Sherry, these little morning glories closed up like telescopes in the afternoon 100 degree sun. I'm just amazed they can keep coming back in this heat! Howie sends love....
