Full bloom

A giant rose in bloom. It completely filled my small vase. I think it's another old-fashioned variety - wish I knew the names of these.

Beautiful!!!! I can't get enough of these roses, each one is just stunning.

I absolutely love roses like this that are red and pink around the edges but look like they're glowing in the middle. So purdy! You've done an awesome job :)

Love all the tones of pinks in this rose and the hits of soft yellow tie in the wall colour.
Very pretty series you have going on.

The roses that you have mastered in your paintings are too pretty for words.The colors are perfect.

Every week at work one of my dear friends who is a resident at my workplace leaves a beautiful heirloom rose on my desk.They are deep crimson in color and are from a rose bush that is 20 years plus.

Thank you for capturing the beauty of nature that is all aroung us.

i love this one too!! I love the way you paint, I always try to paint in this style...I can't really explain it...but I just never hit it quite right. I love how realistic, yet jagged, everything looks...
