Painting Yellow Cottage Roses


Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by .  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.  Last Friday I was in Trader Joe's and an employee was pushing around a shopping cart filled with bouquet's of a dozen roses in all colors.  To my delight and surprise the employee was giving the roses to the customers in the store - he even let everyone pick their favorite color.  I picked yellow.

Let's join Bentley, my helpful Studio Assistant, and he will show you the yellow roses.







I love blue and yellow together and put the bouquet of yellow roses in a blue an white vase.  I was having tea in a blue and white tea cup and loved the way they looked together.







I decided to paint the blue and yellow vase with the cottage yellow roses with the blue and white tea cup.



Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those of you who are following my blog. 

I have read that soon if you do not have a "BLOGGER" blog that you will not be able to follow my blog through blogger.  If you have Typepad, Wordpress or any blog other than BLOGGER, and want to continue to follow my blog , please see my side bar to follow me by e-mail notification.  I have also created a Facebook account for The Painted Garden and I believe that you can also follow me on Facebook.  My computer person is working on this and I will have more information for you about Facebook next week.

In view of the many e-mail requests I receive from my readers inquiring how to purchase my small art  - I have  activated my ETSY account where I will be selling some of the smaller paintings I share with you.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Beautiful!!! Yellow flowers look perfect with blue and white china.
There are so many changes happening with Blogger and Google... Sometimes I just with they would leave it all alone.

LOVE the painting of yellow roses and the blue and white china. Reminds me of Monet's dining room at Giverney.
