Winter Rose

6"x8" oil on gessoboard
Time for a change!!  I have two winter roses growing in my garden, they are so is pink but my favorite is this green one.  I like being able to  pick a flower whenever I pass by  to stick in a jar or bottle and place in my studio.... often this leads to a painting like this one did. Keeping things simple...just the way I like it!!


  1. This is really lovely Karen! I haven't heard of winter roses before - what makes them different to normal roses?

    1. Thanks Wendy! They are called Lenten Roses as well but they are actually Hellebores, not related to roses. They flower in winter.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
