"Lady Banks Rose" Original Watercolor (5x7)

90.00

I discovered this beautiful yellow rose on a spontaneous trip to historic Georgetown. It was a moody rainy day with plenty of romantic fog, quaint artisan shops and gorgeous old homes. I snapped some photos of this flowering vine drooping with rainfall about four years ago but just recently learned its name, "Lady Banks." Who is Lady Banks? The rose specimen was brought from China in 1807 and named after the botanist Sir Banks' wife. There you have it!

About the Spring Collection

Nature, and more specifically plants, have always been a part of my art. As I contemplated what collection I should paint in 2019, plants made the most sense. 

Specifically, I love observing the changes in each season. Many of us long for that shift from the rest and reflection of winter to the energy and hope of spring and the contentment and harvest of summer. Fall and winter can be difficult days, but they are also filled with beauty and not without purpose. I see reflections of our life patterns in nature’s seasons. I love to discover the Creator cultivating His garden and image-bearers. My goal is to share these discoveries of beauty with you. 

They are gifts for enjoyment and healing, purpose and hope. I live with the hope that “He has made all things beautiful in [their] time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

What does Spring make you think? “Yay! We made it!” Or perhaps, “Time to get out my allergy mask!” 😷 Color is bursting through the new green at every turn—and I love it! 

To me, Spring is a time of light, hope, energy and fulfillment! It is a time when we realize that He was at work all along, despite the silence and waiting. 

My Spring series is a collection of some of my favorite plants during this time of year. Take a look here on my website—maybe they are your favorites too!
