I did a recent post about the azaleas blooming at the museum. Today is a watercolor about the roses at Lacy Park. With the park in San Marino on the paint-out schedule for April, I was planning to paint some roses in the arbor area where there are hundreds of rose bushes. I was looking forward to trying maybe a closer look at some flowers. On my visit last year, I painted the arbor structure from a distance, Park Roses. Much to our surprise, the rose garden was completely off limits to visitors, barricades blocked the entrances. We heard that a they are rebuilding the arbor supports which are badly deteriorated from age, weather, and termites. Outside of the arbor, I found some shade on one side with a view of some roses so I was happy.
