Pink Rose Inspirations

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.  Our Roses have been glorious in spite of a recent record breaking heat wave along the coast of Southern California - it was 104 one day where I live just a mile and a half from the ocean and now we are back to our beautiful cool ocean breezes.

Let's join Bentley, my Studio and Garden Assistant, to look for inspirations to find pink Roses to paint.  I just bought three vintage turquoise Ball jars with lids from ETSY and can't wait to fill them with Roses to paint.

                                 Pink Iceberg Roses beside my driveway love their sunny location.

                                      Pink Iceberg Roses on my neighbor's fence.
I like to pick the Roses to paint when they are fully open so they will have a loose and old fashion look!


I bought some of the new reproduction turquoise Ball jars and have been looking for the vintage ones that are bigger and lighter in color and still have the metal hooks on them and was so happy to find these on ETSY.

I used the Ball jar on the right in the painting that has the words "perfect mason" and filled it with the open pink Roses.

Painting is now listed in my SHOP.

Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, kind comments and those of you who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions .Due to the many requests I receive about my art and if it is for sale - I am now listing new items in my ETSY shop at the end of  my blog post.  My shop can be reached by pressing the shop button on my navigation bar.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin
