Life's Little Wonders

As an artist, form, contrast and color always attracts me. I can find beauty in the smallest things and even in the ugliest things. One day I was sitting on my patio enjoying the evening breeze and watching the setting sun. I turned and spotted this:

I ran in the house, got my camera and captured the sun setting on this pale lavender rose. It was so breathtaking in person. Since then, I've painted this image many times, even in pastel, watercolor and acrylics. Everyone who bought one was happy with it...but I retain the original of it in my memory. A quiet evening with the sun setting on a pale lavender rose and yet another pleasant memory filed away for future rememberance... Don't just glance and quickly forget. Some things are worth saving and savoring over and over again.
