everyone enjoyed my last rose so I decided to another one. Hope you all enjoy this one as much as you enjoyed my last. I posted the before and after pictures on here to show what it looked liked before the paints went on.

nice bright colors. I saw awhile back someone suggested you stick to black and white art. I think you are doing a nice job on the colored work, and my input is to keep it up!!

How’s the grandson doing? Lots of time together this summer?

Really cool….........Neil
