Hot as Fire!


It's as hot here in the South this summer as these hot as fire tangerine tea roses, which are appropriately named...

...Rio Samba!

Rio Samba is a hybrid tea rose introduced by Jackson & Perkins which was named after the Samba dancers at Carnival in Rio


Brilliant yellow petals deepening into orange near the edges creates a luminous beauty.

 The hybrid version of a fresh market bouquet grabbed my attention and is shown in my photograph above {which I have not re-touched}...
 

...and this is my interpretation painted in gouache and watercolour {shown framed as a suggestion}.

This charming painting would be adorable in a cottage, country house, or sun room. The rose bud border creates a lovely frame around the bouquet. Beautiful as an individual piece of art and lovely in a grouping of two or more.It is currently available in my Etsy shop.  My photo of the Rio Samba Tea Roses is available on a selection of licensed products in my Zazzle shop.


Wishing you all some time to smell the roses this summer.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne
