The local vendor who makes the greeting card boxes I purchase makes all types of small display packaging. I found they had these black gloss-covered boxes in three sizes on clearance. Black cats, black boxes, what could happen there? It’s taken me a few years to get around to using them, but you’ll be seeing plenty of them coming up soon, until I run out of them.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Just one little sliver of sunlight crept through the blind and that was all it took to illuminate these old roses in a tiny glass vase. I stood in my kitchen and sketched this as quickly as possible before the light changed.
These are roses that I grow, am unbelievably bright pink pasture rose and an ancient deep red sweet-smelling climbing rose. Blooming plentifully in June, I placed them in an inexpensive glass bowl; they fall apart rather quickly but I still wanted to enjoy them indoors. I had prepared a number of drawing surfaces on old pieces of mat board, this being a combination of gesso and marble dust applied in a thick impasto, leaving deep brush marks for whatever I drew on it.
