Say It With Flowers, 16 x 20" oil on canvas, © Fay Terry, 2013
This painting is one of several larger ones I have been working on and I am pleased with the way it turned out. My husband gave me these roses on my birthday and I began the painting right away because I love painting roses before they open up. It's a good thing I took a photo as well because they changed so much each day and now their look is totally different.
The Han vase, patterned after Han dynasty examples and glazed in Chinese blue, was made by my friend Ben Owen III, from Seagrove, North Carolina.
This will be going to a gallery soon, so contact me if you are interested.
