"American Beauty" by Carol Thompson

American Beauty

"This rose is truly an 'American beauty'.  She has a delicate demeanor and a sweet fragrance.  But beware!  She has sharp thorns and an independent spirit."

Artist comment:  "My rose garden in Olympia, Washington was my pride and joy.  Of all the roses, this one was the handsomist, most prolific, and longest lasting bloomer.  It was disease and pest resistant.  The color was vibrant.  I had to paint it, and watercolor on Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper was my choice.  I washed in the background in yellows, blues, purple, and green, letting it dry before meticulously rendering the leaves, and finally the bud and blossom."
