Roses ready to share

Jul 16, 2023

Mama always said I’d be an artist, but she didn’t tell me there were gonna be days like this. Self-imposed deadlines are the worst, but they get the job done. I wanted to be able to share one of the rose bouquet paintings with you today. They are all almost completed; here is the first in the series.

"Homegrown Roses," 11x14, oil, $450, original painting of pink roses grown by the painter's husband. Michel McNInch, artist.
“Homegrown Roses,” 11×14, oil, $495

Robert grew these roses, and they were spectacular. So glad I took the opportunity to paint them. I love this classic color combination.


A huge mess has been created and enjoyed.

Also, thank you for all the social media love! I see you interacting and sharing as well. When you share, the algorithm shares too. I have gotten over 80 of my friends back this week. Thank you very much. In case you missed last week, here is a list of the new social media accounts where you can find me and my work.

I’m still learning the video portion of the game, but it’s fun. Hope to have more for you soon.

See you next week. Until then, I’ll be painting.

    Love the roses. What makes them so much more special is that Robert grew them.
