Rose Valley Adventure

Some people have asked me how I pick my painting of the day. That’s a good question. All my images are picked out ahead of time and the composition is chosen as well.

Today, I chose “Rose Valley Adventure” because I had quite a bit of colors mixed from yesterday’s piece on my palette still — I looked through my images to find something that had similar colors. I know it’s not quite so esoteric… but there you have it!

A few years ago I was in Rose Valley with some dear friends after the holidays — we wanted to see the waterfalls. I was attracted to this image because of the dark and light pattern as well as the sage greens in the background.

This piece is 5″ x 5″ and painted on cradled board.
