Rosa moyesii 'Highdownensis'

Rosa moyesii 'Highdownensis'. Oil on gessoboard. 7" x 5".

We've had sunshine here in Bellingham for over a week now and my roses are blooming. This afternoon I painted this cutting from my garden.

Rosa moyesii grows like a tall shrub - it's about 10' tall with great dappled shade in my back garden. Single red roses. Love it.
