Through the week I've watch the orange roses (here) go from debutantes
to roses of a certain age.
The color gradations knock me out.
These abstract closeups help me see them in a new way.
For me, that's what art does.
Yesterday, I finished a quasi-impressionistic painting of roses
and painted this
I have a green land, pink seas series in mind
inspired by the peony bud in this post.
Peonies, they took over our lives for a while, didn't they?
