Everything's Coming up Roses - acrylic version finished

16x20 acrylics on wrapped canvas, over watercolor, finally done this weekend! I worked over 75% of it or more and changed the large pink rose to a white one.  For now I'm stopping and saying it is finished.  The idea was to add pastel shades and ignore most rules of painting especially where the background is concerned.  Lots of negative shapes were utilized while trying a more contemporary vibe.

Once again I love this. It has a lovely femenine, airy feel. The background is perfect.

A lovely lyrical painting with roses as theme. Just goes to show how unnecessary rules are when it's in your heart! Beautiful KAY.
