Sold-Our Love Dance displayed by shabby pink roses

Our Love Dance with Shabby  Pink Roses

These gorgeous shabby pink roses represent for me the dance we take in our relationships with the people we love. Hence the  name “Our Love Dance”.

I painted these gorgeous little pink roses on a canvas board 25.4 x 35.5cm using Genesis heat set Artists oils.



Greys Encourage Brilliance in the Shabby Pink Roses

Okay,  I know that sounds strange, but with this painting I also experimented with the concept of painting most of the board with greys and only using a very small amount of pure colour. It really works. My greys are made with various mixtures of Quinacridone Magenta and Permanent green with white to alter the tone. This is the first time I’ve actually paid any attention to how little pure colour I used. I was surprised.

So going  back to my ‘philosophizing’… it’s the ‘greys’ in our relationships that make the beauty shine brilliantly. We need the difficulties and struggles that are found in each relationship. They are what makes the beautiful truly brilliant. So I guess the challenge is to keep persevering through the struggles and not give up on each  other. We only need a small amount of pure colour to have brilliance.



We all need reminders around us to love more and to not expect too much from our loved ones. if you want this painting to be  your reminder you can place your bid here.
