One of my favorite nurseries that feature antique roses is that of David Austin. These large, romantic roses are similar to those grown in the 19th century. This 10 x 8 painting is on a panel. Click here for further information.,

Many people think that oil paintings are better than acrylic paintings but this is not true and I would not worry about acrylics v.s. oils when selecting a painting. Many acrylic paintings are hard to tell from oil paintings and can often be painted exactly like oil paintings depending on the skill of the artist. Both kinds of media are long lasting and can be framed without glass.
You should also not be concerned about whether the painting is on stretched canvas or on a panel. I will write about this in next week’s blog.
This painting sold before I could show it on my blog but I found a photograph of it and wanted all of you to see it anyway! Click here to go to my online gallery and see other paintings.
In addition to floral art, there is an endless number of paintings of other subject matter. The good thing about beginning a collection of small paintings is that if your interest later changes, your small paintings make wonderful gifts to family and friends or donations to charity for auctions. Collect a painting that you love, no matter what it is and you can’t go wrong.

If you are beginning to collect art, you might consider collecting one or two special categories. Florals, for example, or landscapes are always popular. You can have a wonderful collection of paintings of all different types of flowers or you can specialize in roses, or pansies, or leaves! I have friends who collect paintings of dogs and a friend-of-a friend has built an entire collection of small paintings of turtles! Love what you collect and you can’t go wrong!
This painting is on traditional linen canvas on stretcher bars. It is very heavily textured and the paint strokes stand out! The edges of the painting are carefully painted so that it can be hung without a frame if desired. Read more about it by clicking here.
