It's truly a little miracle to go out to the garden on a stormy day in late October and find two sweet roses blooming. The winds were at gale force overnight with pouring rain, and still, thee they were, lifting their petals through the rain.
I decided to do another "Last Roses of Summer" painting. I did one last November and really loved the idea. In searching for a background, I thought of a book of paintings by M. Takayama. which contains several beautiful abstract paintings. I remembered a glorious yellow painting, and so i propped the book up in front of the roses.. I also thought the script was interesting.
I might like this version better. What do you think?
I'd love to hear your comments!
