I finished the copy of Roses – Vincent Van Gogh in June. This was a commission I truly enjoyed creating although it took longer to complete than I had planned. The drawing was complex and the impasto took considerable time to dry before additional layers could be applied. But, in the end, I was satisfied with the copy. Visitors to the National Gallery provided numerous positive comments regarding the quality of the work with two additional persons offering to purchase the painting. The copy is now safely in its new home and the client stated he is happy with the results.
