"Rose Garden in Santa Rosa, CA" (acrylic, 18" x 24; sold)

This utterly romantic rose garden is located in Santa Rosa, CA.  There are not one or two, but three rose arbors in this enchanted garden!  What you don't see in my paintings are Snoopy statues scattered throughout the garden and the town itself in honor of Charles Schulz.  I thought they would send a mixed message--romantic or whimsical?  So they were edited out.

My darling daughter, then 9 years of age, in love with a Snoopy statue!
