Rose and Ceramic Jar, Oil on Canvas Panel

6x8 Oil Painting on Canvas Panel

It took me two days to finish this painting. I painted the jar first.  I was not sure if I could convincingly paint the designs on the jar (I posted a painting of the jar a couple of months ago without any design). Now I am glad I tried.  Took me about 2 1/2 hours on the jar, which is slow even for me.  On the second day I added the rose, the background, and the base.  The rose, as with all flowers, was a challenge for me.  I always seem to struggle with the subtlties and nuances needed to paint a (white) flower.  Anyway, hope you all like the painting (sorry for the  poor picture quality) and thanks for stopping by.
