"Bud & Rosie have a tiff" 5"x7" oil on canvas


Due to a snow fall during the night, I cancelled my class this morning.   You know how some days the painting comes so easily and other days.....this was one of those days.   Setting up took me about 1.5 hours.   Couldn't decide what to paint, nothing excited me.   The roses still looked pretty good so I worked on that.   It was a comedy of errors getting everything right.   My canvas fell to  the floor twice and I accidently touched the rose and it flipped into the air and landed on the floor next to my canvas.  Ready to paint and my easel slipped down 2", by the time I was set up I was thinking I should be done by now.   Started out with high hopes, was going to keep it loose and free.  Towards the end I think I had a few strokes too many.   Although the values look right when I take my glasses off.
