even dead roses are pretty....

One of my little luxuries to myself is to always have fresh flowers in the house. Whether they be cut dandelions or lavender sprigs from the yard. Just something about having fresh flowers makes my soul feel good.

I picked up these roses from safeway about two weeks ago (they carry some of the longest lasting roses). Better than most flower shops.

Even now as their beauty fades away, they are still silky and brilliant in color. So pretty I painted them. A little different from the actual roses but I tried to capture their beauty, the various colors. (rose, lavender, soft yellow, green, brown, magenta, black, creme).
