"Rose Arbor Swing" Pastoral New Hampshire Countryside Original Painting
Commission. Original in private collection.
Yellow climbing roses covering an arbor swing in a pastoral, scenic New Hampshire setting, with mountains in the distance, birch trees, stone walls and flowers.
This is the 2nd of 5 commissioned paintings depicting New Hampshire. They requested that one painting have yellow roses. We discussed having the yellow roses climbing an arbor, so they sent a photo of their arbor swing. So now the challenge was painting the arbor swing with climbing yellow roses in a New Hampshire setting.
These are the reference photos I used. The 2nd photo is one I took while driving along a scenic road in the NH countryside.
