I have been painting studies of Roses for a while now. In this pursuit, I attended a workshop with Michael Klein in New York. Michael's roses are incredible and although I learned a lot, I still have a long way to go. My current teacher, Jason Mayr has been very obliging by bringing in roses to class every week and helping us in this endeavor. Many of us who have subjected ourselves to this difficult task are showing improvement. Anyway, the challenge continues.
