Three Graces

THREE GRACES                                                                                            26 x 60

Thoughts on Three Graces...

As in so many of my other paintings
these roses are from my gardens.
I really like the shallow shape of this bowl;
especially the curved sides of it,
that create comfortable ledges
on which to rest flowers.
I arranged them in an arc,
echoing the edge of the bowl,
because I think they are really beautiful together.

I chose the title "Three Graces"
because in Greek mythology they represent
beauty, joy and blooming, as in flowers and youth,
and these three roses seem to full of all three.
