September Sojourn: Day 20

My paint box is starting to show the signs of painting everyday.....needs a good scraping off!

Had a hectic day today and didn't get much further than the back yard to paint.  But I didn't need to.  Sometimes the best subjects are simply right under your nose.
I started with a canvas panel toned in a dark greenish gray and worked on bringing the rose and leaves out of that. I find it fun to try and start different ways ...keeps me interested.   Here is a better view of the finished painting.
