Pink Rose, Square Jar, Light and Dark Green SOLD

This rose is a favorite to paint; it has single roses of a beautiful pale pink color.  It is actually the rootstock of a grafted rose; the grafted rose is on the wane but the vigorous rootstock is sending out lots of canes.  I've posed the flower against a green background and enjoy how the cool dark blue green background and lighter yellow green leaves complement the pinks.   Painted from a still life I set up in my studio.
