The Rose

The Rose    SOLD
I can't believe it but this is the first rose I have painted and it was really
fun to paint it from life, since my house seems to be full of flowers.
Thought you might enjoy this quote from Eleanor.

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.Eleanor Roosevelt

6 x 6 in. oil painting


  1. Reds and greens really pop. Maybe the best one yet!!

  2. Excellent job on this rose, Fay. Wow, and your first painting of a rose? I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote.

  3. Sweet painting. Interesting/funny quote. I would of never guessed who said it.

  4. Fay congratulations on your painting and the sale. Think you will be painting more roses? And what a quote from Eleanor!

  5. There is a lucky girl out there that now has your beautiful rose. Gotta love that quote.
