Five years ago my husband took me to Fickle Hill
Old Rose Nursery in Arcata to pick out a gift for Mother's Day. At that time, the plant stood about
a foot tall. It's now easily 8 or 9 feet tall growing
up the side wall of our studio. The blossoms are large
with soft curvy petals ranging in colors of light pink,to coral to red. It's the most sensuous rose I've ever seen.
I painted this with wet into wet oil paint on a 7x5 inch
