Good Morning Rose

"Good Morning Rose"
8" x 8"
Oil on wrapped canvas
On this snowy spring morning I imagined what it would be like to wake up in a climate where when you opened the door to get your morning paper there was a red rose blooming in your front yard. What a glorious sight it would be to see it first thing. What a greeting it would be on any morning. 

I'm not accustomed to painting red roses, but this one had my name on it. I love… roses.
