"Old English Roses and Japanese Beetles" 

July is one of the best times in the garden because everything starts to come into bloom. However, you do need to race out to take cuttings before the Japanese beetles devour every last petal.

18" x 24" watercolor and gouache on paper. 

I love this painting as a pattern too.
