The rose arbor

Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
All the flowers this year are blooming about 2 weeks ahead of time, and I've felt like I'm playing catch up all spring. This rose arbor is in my backyard, and I got out and painted it the other day, while there were still roses on it. Once they're gone, that's it. I think I'm going to replace it with an everblooming variety in the fall.
