Roses in the Rain

These are the Roses in by backyard during the rainy season. I'm not a big floral type dude, but decided I wanted to enter a International artist magazine contest. 9x12 oil on linen.

I read International Artist too and now they've changed it so you can enter digitally I've been thinking of entering at some point. I have a good feeling about your painting - I can just see it on one of the pages. I really hope you win something. I will be hugely excited if you do!! Good luck!

Hey, Bill!
I just got all 4 issues of your Big Blown Baby comics (I've never seen them before). They are amazing! Cartoony and gross!

Love the new painting of the roses too. Those leaves look nice.
