Rose Garden

"Portrait In My Rose Garden"
I get up at the crack of dawn on the weekends. The house is quiet. I make coffee and go straight to my studio. I'm always ready and inspired to finish or start ART.
On weekdays, I languish in bed, awake, but languish none the less. Starting my day by catching up on all that is going on in my world near and far is just a way to delay what has to be done. Go to work.
This week, I have discovered that I can bounce out at the crack of dawn on weekdays too.
I have discovered 30 to 45 minutes to add to my Artful day.
I have discovered that sometimes it is a good thing to clear the way with a few hours of restful slumber.
Last night the rose garden butterfly had landed centered below her chin.
While we rested, it flitted to her shoulder.
If you wonder where my in sketch inspiration came from. Go here. I just could not stop looking at the head wrap. One thing always leads to another. Always.
More later,


  1. You've done it again.....seriously, I have simply run out of adjectives. Superb, outstanding, brilliant! ok, there's some!
