When the Queen Speaks…

Pomegranate, I 6"x6" Oil on Linen

Queen Elizabeth's Hips Oil on Linen 4"x6"
A few years ago I planted a rose bush with enormous pink roses called “Queen Elizabeth”. Aside from the name, I chose it for its luscious orangey-red rose hips which I thought would look wonderful in a painting. The rose bush is planted in front of the house where every time I passed it, I noticed this one last rose hip. It stood out among all the dark greens and browns of winter, calling me to record its existence on canvas, and so I did.
I am still working on it, along with the pomegranate and a painting of red berries, but I wanted to share it with you while wishing you very happy holidays.


  1. And very happy holidays to YOU as WELL! Lovin' the paintings Carolina *smiles*

  2. Hi Carolina Elizabeth :)
    These paintings are awsome, I love them. I hope to see the new ones you mention soon!
    I want to wish you too a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Have the best of times!

  3. Amazing I think you caught the texture of a pomegranate... I am happy you are making a promise to paint one a day.... Your paintings make me smile.
