Peace Rose

Peace Rose
Oil on Canvas 15cm x15cm sold

Growing Peace Roses has been a family favorite for decades probably since the time my parents took us on a trip to the West Coast beginning in Portland, Oregon in time to visit the Rose Festival and see the Rose Parade in about 1949... Each year, my Father loved telling of his largest, "This size across....". rose. We have a photograph taken of my Grandmother Thompson looking lovingly at her first ever "Peace Rose".
        Since those days, there has always been at least one bush  of them in the little rose garden here. I was pleased to see this one a few days ago and record it in paint for all of us

Thank you for looking, Marilyn Miller
