Prairie Princesses

DSCF6734The prairie roses were abundant this summer and these three pink beauties and their tiny bud attendants nestled into the green foliage just begged to be painted.  But – I don’t know why I torture myself like this.  I want so badly to paint  “good” roses but I just don’t seem to be able to meet my own standards.  These however, are definitely a step in the right direction – I think.
