Rose profusion and the world smelled sweet.
It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside. ~ Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib.

A profusion of roses suggests a story...
Old-fashioned roses bloom en masse along a sagging porch. Neighbourhood families have come and gone many times since these roses were planted long ago.
Sadly, no one remembers who lived in the old house before it was abandoned. However, the roses remind passersby that someone loved this house and its sweet roses.
Was it a young mother who watched her children play while she sat in a comfy chair in the shade of the porch?
Perhaps a young couple had dreams for this home, white picket fence and all...what happened to them?
For now, the roses grow wild, untamed by any hands, young or old. Their sweet perfume wafts over the entire neighbourhood, a fragrant ode to times gone by...
And now the technical details...
Rose Profusion is a OOAK (one-of-a-kind) acrylic painting to which texture paste has been applied for interest.
Rose Profusion is finished with a glossy varnish to enhance the colours. (photograph was taken before varnishing).
