My favourite rose bush.

My favourite rose bush.

That's beautifully painted, I like the leaves in silhouette...they make the flowers pop.

I love roses and this is a beautiful painting of them.

Beautiful in colour and skill Val, lovely work.

Beautiful red roses, nicely painted and great colour in the leaves gives nice depth.

Thank you so much Margaret Fiona and Carole .
