The painting arrived. It’s beautiful! — C. Mace, Eastland TX
In 2006 my husband Robert retired from the US Navy, and we returned home to Texas after being away for over 20 years. Of all the places we could have chosen to live, we decided to settle in the East Texas region. East Texas is a lovely place to call home because of its lush green vegetation, vast rose gardens, Texas Longhorn cattle ranches, hay growers, working farms, rodeos, and the many small country towns and communities. In this setting, we chose to build our little ranch approximately 20 miles west of Tyler.
Tyler, Texas is known as the “Rose Capital of the U.S.A.” because this area alone produces over 20% of the nation’s roses. This city also has the nation’s largest municipal rose garden, is home to the Tyler Rose Museum, and hosts the Texas Rose Festival every year in October. The festival draws more than 100,000 visitors to the city each year.
When we first moved here, I was inspired to paint this rose painting because we were surrounded by many beautiful roses. Roses are my favorite flower! Their delicate beauty and fragrant scent appeal to me. And red roses are my favorite. They have such a vibrant color.
Roses come in so many different varieties of color and are widely recognized as a symbol of love, sympathy, or sorrow, depending on the rose’s color. For example, a red rose symbolizes love, yellow of friendship, orange of enthusiasm, white purity, and pink joy.
