09/2021 Rose Garden
This is a plein-air piece I did at the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, Oregon on 09/13/2021. It's one of the most beautiful spots in Oregon.
A fun fact about the garden: In 1915 Jesse A. Currey, rose hobbyist and Sunday editor of the Oregon Journal, convinced city officials to institute a rose test garden to serve as a safe haven during World War I for hybrid roses grown in Europe. Rose lovers feared that these unique plants would be destroyed in the bombings. The Park Bureau approved the idea in 1917 and by early 1918, hybridists from England began to send roses.

About the Printing Materials
Archival Inks: Fade-resistant pigmented inks are used, which provide a superior color range than other types of prints. These are widely preferred in fine art and photography circles.
Hahnemühle Hemp Base - Eco Paper: The paper this is printed on is ECO FRIENDLY!! It doesn't take away from the quality either.
