My Neighbor's Roses

I'm kind of pleased with this one. It was very hard to do. These roses were in my neighbor's garden, Mr. Prestridge, and he kindly allowed me to take lots of pictures of them.

In order to get these variegated roses, I blew up portions of the picture and printed them out on photo grade paper. The difference is amazing and everybody who paints from photos ought to try this.

Here it is, it's entitled, "My Neighbor's Roses".
