Roses with Peach and Blue

“Roses with Peach and Blue” — oil on canvas 30 x 40″ by Margie Guyot

At least I’m calling this finished. I started this last summer but a zillion other things got in the way. And I was stumped about the composition. Something didn’t look right. And I didn’t know how to make the golden threads of the sari sparkle. So it got relegated to the back room for a while. Recently I solved another painting dilemma by meditating and using the Silva Method of Mind Control to figure out a solution. So that’s what I did for this one, too. I just promised myself that the next time I walked into the studio and saw this, I’d know what to do: I added the blue dish in the upper left.

Here’s how it looked before:


  1. YES! That blue dish really appeals to the eye!!

    I feel so crazy commenting on your art because you know I know nothing about it!! However, your glass is my favorite!!

    BTW, I completed my Florida DriveAbout this week. My Michigan DriveAbout is the next most important thing on my Bucket List. Maybe I can come see your art next summer!

    What month is best to visit? I learned during my New England and Canada drive about in 2019 that late May and early June is still COLD and no flowers up in the northern parts!

  2. Ahh, the age old delema. Every painting demands the painter solve a problem, it bugs the mind until a solution is found; and when doing water color ihave even cut out a new piece of water color paper, pasted on the painting and voila, a new chance at finishing the piece. Lucky oil painters, a swoop of a scrapper and a new image to appear. As always your paintings show masterly control of all elements; and the finished painting is a joy to behold. jim gibbons


  3. your right, peaches and blue needed something in the empty space left upper; addition of bule plate cements down the whole pic. I too, puzzled about the pic, thinking how to solve the apparent conundrem. good work jim gibbons
