One rose ... twice
One lovely rose bloomed out of season.  One fine October weekend, here she was, one tea rose, in full bloom.  As it was to get really cold that night, I snipped it and brought it indoors.  From the rose bush that was a gift from my three fabulous friends on my 50th birthday.

I decided to sketch this beauty.  After sketching, I thought I should like to have more than one of these beauties, so I turned the vase and sketched it from another angle.

So here it is.  The fun part is that it was painted using only three pigments.  Yes, the same three pigments from the shell and feather paintings.
