"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

Black, White, and a Red Rose

Since studying the Impressionists in college I have always thought it wrong to put black in a painting.  But I decided to try it anyway.  It's not 1880 anymore, right?  I submitted this to rookiepainter.


  1. Hello Jeneen: You finished it already! And you did very well! I love the loose brushstrokes in the gray background. And the black goes lovely with the reds and greens. You made a great choise with that. Your rosebuds are fantastic. Very very nice!

  2. Thanks, Renate. Your comments are always specific, and that is helpful.
