I'm a Rose Painter Wanna Be!!

I have wanted - no, lusted for - the ability to paint roses for years and years. Finally last year, I decided to take the plunge. Starting with the "pitiful" top picture you can see my progress. I am only showing you the very, very first attempt (top picture) and the roses from the past week (bottom three). There are, of course, variations in between, but trust me, they are as bad or worse as the top sheet. All but the 3rd one down are painted on colored paper. I've had reams of it for years! The 3rd one down I did a pale blue color wash on a white sheet of copy paper. Just wanted to share and show you there is hope - even for people with absolutely no natural ability - ME!! And ya gotta be brave to post this on the internet for millions of people to see!! I'm brave. :-)
