Birthday Bouquet



Yesterday was my birthday and my husband, Jerry, got me flowers....roses. Has anyone else noticed that cut roses do not last very long? One was already drooping by the end of the day. I decided I'd better paint them quickly before it was too late. This was my last entry in my November Journal of paintings without any preliminary pencil lines. It is about 5 x 7.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Love your roses and yes, I agree, not only do cut roses last, but they have no smell either.
