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.’
