Artist's Description

I discovered and fell in love with the small but beautiful garden at historic Bembridge House (Long Beach, California, USA) in 2013. I checked on the garden a few times this spring, as I was especially looking forward to the early roses. I photographed these vivid pink climbing roses, twining robustly around the supports of a small wrought-iron gazebo, on the 19th of April 2014 – at a peak of spring loveliness. (Painterly effects achieved in Alien Skin SnapArt [customized impasto settings on a partially transparent layer], textures from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures [Spring Impasto “Vintage Rose” & “Primavera2,” Impressions “Bad Boy”]). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 86mm [172mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 1600, late afternoon sun, handheld)
