Smelling Roses ... - SOLD

Pin It
"Smelling Roses ..."
Oil, 8" x 16" 
Things are starting to get crazy in Pasadena. It looks like the rain has stopped (for a few days anyway) and the rush is on to finish decorating the floats. Fans from TCU and Wisconsin are everywhere in Pasadena preparing for the New Years Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game. It's a special time of the year and it looks like we will have a cooler but sunny New Years Day!
I had intended to finish this painting much earlier in my schedule but the holidays and a bad case of the flu just didn't allow me to finish this one until today. I love nautical flags ... so I thought it would be fun to create my own flags that highlight the festivities in town this week!

You are right Leslie, flags are so much fun to paint. Love your palette knife work.

Great painting and right in the spirit of the season!!

It seems you must be feeling better but somehow I hope you are sitting someplace warm and cozy, surrounded by all of your boys and enjoying the health and fun of family while watching parades and football!
