There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.
Before a leaf-bud has burst, its whole life acts; in the full-blown flower there is no more; in the leafless root there is no less.  Its nature is satisfied and it satisfies nature in all moments alike.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you want to learn to paint florals like this join me at the 
Art and Soul Retreat September 2016 in Virginia Beach 
for a workshop on Victorian Flower Painting!


  1. Roses are beautiful, and not surprisingly, they are one of the most popular flowers to give as a present. Of course, they also cost quite a bit to purchase in a bouquet, Graduation flowers
