Rose's Garden Journal

Rose's Garden: a journal cover featuring gouache paintings by Christina Mann Designs

This journal cover was inspired by 
a mini-assignment
for painting roses,
my 100-Day Project painting
"things that fly,"
and one of the first known
women landscape designers.

Artist and agent Lilla Rogers introduced us
to Gertrude Jekyll, one of the first 
women landscape designers, as part of
The quote on my cover comes from Gertrude,
(although the woman image is not her).

Roses and hand lettered quote by Christina Mann Designs

I enjoyed painting the
combination of wild and cultivated roses,
But I loved painting the woman
and the Prairie Warbler birds!
The birds are part of my 100-Day Project,
which you can view on Instagram.
