OK, this is the first time I’ve ever had fun painting roses.  Maybe I just needed to loosen up.  In fact, this was so much fun to paint that I’m thinking about doing a series of them, all based on this still life.  Stay tuned.

Oh, and by the way, I have no idea what kind of roses these are.  They were all growing in my garden when I moved in.  I do know that the peachy yellow rose is ‘Lady Hillingdon.’
