Fall Reflections

As most of you know, my Summer into Fall was challenged with a severe case of hives (from top to bottom and side to side) so not much got done in the way of arting, but I wanted to catalogue the last piece I did before the hives took full control ... as they are back after a respite with Prednisone (and thank heavens for that respite!).

John's Rose
Painted from a photo taken by my friend Jaen.  This particular rose holds great heart-meaning to her and her hubby, "Mr. Bears", which I was pleased to hear about when given permission to paint it. 

Its done with Oil Pastels on Ampersand Pastelbord 5"x7" and sealed with SpectraFix.  Then carfully and lovingly packed and sent to them in Canada.  :-D

Thank you Jaen and Mr. Bears for your kind permission to paint this beautiful rose!  <3


  1. Simply beautiful Von. Love the things you paint. Connie

  2. Those nasty hives may have dulled your spirit, but certainly not your talent, my friend. This is absolutely beautiful!

    1. Thank you Kay (((hugs))) We have a mutual admiration society going on with our arty-bits because I love what you do too. :D


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment! I appreciate both. :-)
