We took a trip to Napa in May and the vineyards had roses growing at the end of each row. I read that it helps to determine the health of the vines. If the roses are healthy, the vines are healthy. Some of the same diseases affect both.
I painted this twice and this one was my first attempt. I liked the colors I ended up with in the foreground, but didn't have enough light at the top of the vines. Not sure which I like better, but they are just different enough for me to keep them both.
