Roses are Red my Love

by Doreen Ingebrigtsen

This painting I only completed recently, it was in my mind for a long time after visiting a friend in Scotland last year. She lost her husband about 6 years ago and created and dedicated a wonderful rose garden to his memory. Very sad, but poignant. The roses in her garden are all varying shades of red, she said it was to remind her of her love. They were magnificent and I was in awe of the whole concept,including the beauty and color of her flowers. The richness of the reds crimsons and vermilion's were outstanding. I tried to revisit this garden in my mind and made an effort to do those colors justice in this painting.
