JOYFUL                                                           30 x 28

Thoughts on Joyful...

that is how I felt when I saw this bunch of roses in the sunlight.
It was the end of the rose season and
I had cut these last roses to bring them indoors
before the first hard frost of the season.
That alone makes them special.
But in the sunlight on that November afteroon,
they were magic.
As I played with the red-edged napkin
the flutter on the right happened.
I love the twisty line of it,
and paired with the roses it was perfect.

This painting is on canvas
with a hand-carved, gilded frame.
