Three Roses by Theresa Oats

'Three Roses' is one of several of my paintings of flowers that will be featured in this year's First Street Holiday Invitational(a group show) which opens on November 28 to December 23. This annual exhibit is a fundraiser for Humboldt State University's First Street Gallery.
A public reception will be held on December 3rd in conjunction with Eureka Main Street's
Arts Alive! and of course everyone is welcome.
I painted these roses in oil on location on a 10x5 inch canvas that was stretched and primed by a dear friend of my husband and I, Ingrid Nickelsen, a superb artist who passed away in 2005.
The roses are from a bush that grows up the outside wall of our studio - a few are still opening.
