A Young Rose

Sometimes in the morning, when I am walking through my garden I will observe a particular flower and know I want to paint it, it is as if the flower and I have become intimate friends and I want to celebrate all that is beautiful and remarkable about this meeting.

It was a rare and quiet morning when I happened upon this bloom, with clear blue skies and warmth in the air.
