Under Control

Roses – Mixed Media on Canvas Board – 10×12 inches

There is a fair amount of texture in this painting.  When the gesso was still wet, I imprinted a rose stencil on the canvas board.  You may not be able to see it in the background, but you can see it when you get close.

Here is what the painting would look like framed:
