I love single, closed rosebuds...they always look so romantic. I used one of my photos for this painting which is 5 x 5 inches. I used a stamp for the textured look of words in the background.
This was sketched along the road by the ferries in Sayville. On a normal summer day this road is very busy with cars pulling into all the parking areas. In the winter the street is pretty deserted...they even let you park along the street which is not allowed "in season."
