American Folk Art
is having a May Flowers theme. The artists are updating their galleries with new offerings, and this months theme is "Flowers". So, I painted Emma Rose...she is loosely based on a painting by John Bradley ©1844 (remember the "Passed" painter that painted several portraits using a kitten and a potted rose bush in his portraits?). She is holding a rose plucked from the rose bush that her kitten is climbing...Ouch!
June/July's theme is "Americana", then for August its "Life's A Beach". Hmmmm, I'll have to start doing a bit of research for this one!
