Hooray- it's Friday and you know what that means- time for Paint Party Friday! I know I said a few posts ago that I was going to work on a tulip next, but this rose got in my head and just would NOT leave! So here is my current WIP- it's from a picture I took last year of Perle D'or, the rose on my mailbox. This rose gives and gives and gives! It is always the first to bloom and as long as I remove the spent flowers, it keeps blooming until the first freeze, usually in November! I LOVE it!
The only drawback is that it isn't an especially good cut flower, as the blooms only last a couple of days. BUT, just look at the shape of those petals!
And here is the reference I'm using:
Be sure to pop over to Paint Party Friday- there's always so much beautiful work to see!
