Pierre- Auguste Renoir’s last word was “flowers”, a bouquet that consists of roses just picked from his garden in a vase on his bedroom windowsill. During Renoir’s artist career, flowers played a big part in his success. A mixture of bold colors mixed in with beauty. Here are some of our favorite rose paintings.

Jenny Foster - Trunk Show This is my favorite from her site, I saw that you posted some of her art and I'd never seen her work before, so I checked it out.

It's all about how you use the tool, not what brand it…
