November Roses

There were still a few roses growing in our garden today. There are a few less now, because I brought these two indoors to paint (I think I left two buds on the bush). They are miniature roses, coloured a very delicate orange colour and tinged with dark pink. I've got no idea what they are called, only that they must be hardy to have survived our lack of attention.

The background is an approximation to the pale wood mat that was behind the roses when I painted them.

Acrylic on canvas, 7 x 7 cm.
