Stratus Blue Roses

Painted for DPW's Escape the Snow challenge.
Let me explain this painting and how it fits the challenge theme.
First of all, I like snow and don't find I need to escape it.
Second, when I can't paint plein air (outdoors) I paint still lifes indoors.
Third, painting itself is my way of getting away from it all.
I find myself caught up in what I am doing
and that in itself is a form of escape, so to speak.
So my 'escape' was to do this painting.
6" x 8" oil on canvas panel
available on DPW auction
with a starting bid of $30.
