Our friends have a rose garden and we were having them for dinner.
They brought a dozen beautiful, aromatic roses from their rose garden. It was a lovely gesture and very exciting for me. They became the models for my next painting.

Loveliest of lovely things are they
On earth that soonest pass away.
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
–William Cullen Bryant
