I am so fortunate to have several commissions to work on for Christmas and many times before I start a large painting, I will complete a small work just to play with colors and shapes. This morning I also had work to do in the yard. Every rose bush has had a trim and I salvaged four little roses. I placed one in my favorite white vase to sit on my desk and it kept screaming to me, "Paint me!" The other 3 said "Good Bye" as they are definitely the last of the season.
