Joe's Coat Rose

"Joe's Coat Rose"
24" x 36"
Oil on wrapped canvas
Back when "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" was performing in Chicago, some Keene cousins were production carpenters and electricians. They referred to it as "Joe's Coat."  Since this white rose is everything BUT, I gave it, what seemed, an appropriate title.  

"Joe's Coat" was executed with a half dozen sponges loaded in a variety of cool reds. Then warmed in the end with some cadmium yellows and oranges.  

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Daily Paintworks auction.  Check out my gallery on that site. 

Thank you for visiting.


  1. Lovely! I don't see how you can accomplish so much in such a short time!

  2. My little snippets of sponge cover a lot of territory in a short amount of time. I paint the flower paintings in thin glazes, for the most part. I've got it down to... an art. Thank you for your comment.
