Painting in a rose garden

Last month I took a one day class with Maryjo Koch in a rose garden. There weren't many fresh blooms on the rose bushes that day, but we found many things to sketch in the vast gardens. This is an image that I did while sitting in a chair on a shaded deck. I was lucky to find a few roses within sight of the shaded deck.

Good morning Claire, your sketch is lovely and says so much why we paint. We paint to see and to experience the moment. Sounds like you had a wonderful getaway.
