Rose Hips


The latest Daily Paintworks Challenge required priming the painting surface with a bright color and celebrating the arrival of autumn. I started with a background of lime green and cut some rose hips from my garden to welcome in the new season. When I "googled" rose hips to check the spelling, I was surprised to find out that they are edible. In fact, rose hips, which are the seed pods of roses, make a delicious hot tea.  Hmmmm.


  1. Fun and vibrant! I also love the subtly in your previous rose paintings. This one is a nice change of pace. I like the way you simplify the shapes and make then almost poetic

  2. these are all beautiful. Love your painting style.
