Rose Garden Morning
This was painted in the spring in the Rose Garden in Bentonsport, Iowa.
The composition was inspired by a Monet painting
"The Parc Monceau".
I found a reproduction in the book
"Impressionist Gardens" by Clare A.P. Willsdon.
I used a very similar palette as well.
It doesn't hurt to learn from the masters.
It is a painting that I was sorry to sell quickly.
It was in a show at the Fort Madison Area Art Association and it sold before the opening.
