8"x8" Oil on Paper

Roses are blooming in my backyard 
and their structure and colors have captured me.
When I was little I'd help my dad
tend to the roses and we'd try to

Red Chair, Contemporary Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


9" x 12" Oil, $175

It was so satisfying creating this red chair. 
I picture it in sumptuous velvet
inviting me to,

I paint a newly upholstered chair.
