I have taken these four Rose Photos from Roses in my garden. They are all in the RIL, so if anyone would like to use any of them, you are more than welcome. I have lots of Rose photos as well as other Florals in the RIL for your use.

All C&C is most welcome.

Beautiful, might inspire me to finally try a rose after all. Thanks Val!

Wonderful photos - and they'd be fantastic to paint as well! Three bees in one shot - wow!

I painted the 3rd photo before Christmas and I just loved these rose references.

These roses are superb Val. Great photography! My wife loves roses and I might use one of these for a Christmas painting for her. Thank you for your generosity in posting them. :)
I had a look at some of the others you have posted in the RILs. What on earth do you feed them?

Thankyou so much Katherine, Gay, Marianne, Margot, Celeste, Carol, Dan, Maureen, Lillian, Celeste, Robin, Deb and Graham -- your comments are so very much appreciated.

Carol -- Yes, as mentioned in my first post, these are in the RIL.

Maureen -- Could you please give me a link to your painting, as I've not seen it, and would love to.

Graham -- Your wife is an intelligent lady, loving roses so much. I'd just love you to paint from one of my photos for her Christmas present. I just use plain old Blood and Bone on my Roses Graham. As soon as I see them starting to bud, I whip it on, and I'm usually a bit heavy handed, which is an advantage.

Gilberte, you are always welcome to use any of mine in the RIL. So glad you like them.

Thanks so much Arttch -- I'm always very happy when someone uses one of my photos for their art.

Thanks so much Nancy. Yes, that Jessika Rose really is a beauty, as it changes colour from day to day, and every change is a pretty one.
