Roses - Raulston Arboretum
This painting was done a few weeks ago. It's based on one of the roses that was climbing over a wonderfully crafted trellis at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh. I loved the graceful arc and the delicate pink of the blossoms. By now, the cold has browned all remaining flowers ...but memory and photos really bring back the season and joy of that moment.
It's a slow start this morning as our workshop last night ended after 9:30 pm and by the time I reached my friend's, settled down and finally turned off the light, it was after 11 PM ... and we begin again early today with Plant a Row greenhouse projects, harvesting, and finishing up some soaps from last night. We have another workshop tonight that will end as late as last night -- so my perkiness is waiting for additional caffeine before kicking in! LOL
The air was so cold and clear this morning - and I drove in with the crescent moon and Venus brightening the dark of the sky. What a beautiful morning!
Have a great day!
