I painted this "Little Gem" from a photo I took at the famous rose gardens in Portland, Oregon...the City of Roses.
It's day number 40 of my "Little Gems Project". It's been challenging for me to execute a new painting on such a small format, 5x7, every day....and challenging to write my story that accompanies it, but I'm truly enjoying the journey. I hope you are, too. I don't know who you all are that are following as I have no way to "see into" the statistics, but they tell me that between 200-300 of you are visiting everyday. AMAZING! Thank you for coming along on my art adventure!
