Thoughts on Silent Night...

Often, when I am arranging white drapery in a painting I am thinking of snow,
especially if I am doing the photography for it in winter months.
I cut these roses in early November and photographed them the next day,
after it had snowed.
When I put the dark blue background behind them,
it looked like a cold snowy night,
one of those nights when the snow muffles every sound
and it's still and quiet, and very peaceful...a special kind of silent night.
