This journal cover was inspired by
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
her Make Art That Sells Bootcamp class.
The quote on my cover comes from Gertrude,
(although the woman image is not her).
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.
