I recently discovered a new hybrid rose variety that I absolutely love. They are called esperanza roses.
They are delightfully pink on the top and then have shades of cream and apple green on the petals. I picked up a bunch of the in the supermarket and painted them recently in a green vase which i converted into a pitcher for artistic reasons. The watermelon was a nice compliment to the set-up and I was really happy with the way the painting turned out.
The painting is available through Galerie du Soleil in Naples, Florida. You can contact them at (239)417-3450 if you are interested in purchasing this painting.
Thanks for looking and happy New Year to all my collectors and artist friends!
