Rose Garden Drawings

Rose Garden ink drawings Zilker Gardens NV11 by Honoria Starbuck  Rose Garden painting by Honoria Starbuck NV11
Gestures of fall bloom roses at Zilker Botanical Gardens.

Veteran's day was the day Mom passed away.
Since I used to go with Mom to botanical gardens I went to Zilker as a kind of memorial.
I went to the rose garden and was surprised to see a number of the roses in full fall bloom.
The smell  of blooming roses in the air was heavenly.
I set up along a wall and enjoyed several hours of hanging out with the roses.
I did some layered abstract sketches and then the roses wanted me to draw them so I did.
