Wrigley Roses

It's been a few months since I painted this watercolor at the Wrigley Mansion in Pasadena.  Since 1958 it's been the headquarters for the Tournament of Roses which organizes the New Year's Day Rose Parade.  Of course the extensive and lovely rose garden there usually features many beautiful flowers.

Our paint-out day started out a little overcast.  On my previous paint-out there, I painted the rose garden in, November Roses.  The rose garden was my subject again and my painting has been a dilemma.  Maybe it was the dreary mood of the day's start, or too much green?  I might have liked a different approach more.  Next time!

  1. Hi Sherry , thanks so very much for your visit.. You probably know that when you don't post all the time, you don't get much traffic to the blogs.. That's what happened to me.. I had some life problems, and have not been active in blogging.. but hoping to come back slowly... I really appreciate you coming and your comments. yes, sunflowers , almost as much of a staple as pears. LOL !
    Your painting here is lovely.. Really !
