Pink Gerbera Daily Painting

Pink Gerbera
5 x 7 Oil
Carole Rodrigue ©2014

Today's painting is a pink gerbera from my garden.  I find pink a challenging colour to work with.  There are so many shades and tones, from warm to cool, so it's tricky getting just the right colour mix.  That's the great thing about being an artist though, trying to figure out all these subtle nuances that make something real.  It's also a great metaphor for life, as with so many things about creating art are.

This is now up for auction on eBay if you enjoy it.  Have a great day!

A lovely flower that pops right out with the dark background...very nice piece, Carole. (the glass vase is wonderful as well!)
