The last few days I’ve been mucking around with a still life study of some pink roses in a vase with sprigs of fern leaves.

I wouldn’t say I’ve been very successful at capturing the wonderful light and color of the petals, nor the shape of the vase and I think it is rather overworked, but I did learn quite a bit while doing this piece and I feel closer to breaking through my inhibitions.
