Yellow Roses with One Red

I live in a tiny neighborhood in a cul-de-sac. I have a really great neighbor. There's no way not to know each other....at least not in my country-girl mind.

Last week, my girl's shoulder was still in a sling. We asked him to stop by when he had a chance. I wanted to bribe him with a full meatloaf dinner that he could take home and cook at his leisure. As he walked in, I had a mass of meat flopping back and forth between my palms. He smiled, "What do you need?"

A yard mowing. Just the front for right now.

He immediately came down and got my yard back in shape. I fill his arms with a home-cooked dinner. But before he left, he asked if I would paint his yellow rose bush. The one heavy with yellow blooms and one red one.

Today, I had the time and the inclination.

I started with a paletteful of yellows, blues, greens, oranges and tans.

Then I laid out the colorful background.


And finally placed the flowers on top. I hope he likes it.


I should make a sign:

Will paint for

...well, what've you got that I want?

P.S. Have you seen my cock?

Amber said...

This is beautiful I cannot draw a stick man using a ruler, but I know pretty when I see it. You are so talented. I can understand some of your indecision lately. I have decided it is not due to fear, it is just that you have so much to offer, it must be too hard for you to decide which talents to showcase where. I live in Smyrna.... I would do some kind of work for a cool painting like that.

Hammer said...

I'd hang that in my living room.

Southern Sage said...

Dana said...

Well, you know I'm a little partial to your jewelry, but only because it looks nice on my nipple - this painting is BEAUTIFUL, but would need to stay on my wall.

BTW, I make really fantastic "goodie boxes" I'd be more than happy to put you on the monthly plan for a year for one of those paintings *wink*
