The Rose


As a flower in the garden
Bending toward the sun,
Unfolds it's tiny petals
One, by one, by one...
So faith expands it's beauty
Until at last it grows
into life's lasting flower...
The heart's fair perfect rose.

I've been painting roses, lots and lots of roses!

Hi Donna!

Forgive me for being away for so long. I've haven't been reading blogs for a few weeks and I miss it!

You do fabulous work. I tried to paint roses once. Key word: tried. I hope you are planning to frame your work :o)

Hi Donna
I picked the most beautiful rose from my garden this morning and thought how it would be great to try and paint it. I love the roses you painted Donna. They are beautiful.
Thanks for all your encouraging comments.
