This is an original oil painting of a creamy-white rose called 'Summer memories'.
The rose variety is called summer memories so I named the painting after the variety. For the flower lovers among us, it is lovely to have a memory of the summer in the form of a painting on the wall. This particular rose is in my Mum's garden. I took a cutting from the rose in my garden and gave it to her a few years ago. In typical fashion, it performs much better in her garden than the original does in mine! I wanted to capture the rhythm of the buds surrounding the main flower.
It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. The painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.
The image size is 30.5cm x 30.5cm (12" x 12") and is in a chunky frame that measures 43.3cm x 43.3cm.
It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
