Strange Metamorphosis – Yellow Roses

“Yellow Roses on Lavender Cloth” — oil on canvas 18 x 18″ by Margie Guyot

Kind of magic, actually. I’d bought a bunch of yellow roses that refused to open, despite cutting them a number of times and giving fresh, warm water several times a day. I’d begun painting them, hoping they’d eventually unfurl. Here’s how things looked at the end of the first day:

These poor things were on a rapid death-spiral. How could you paint from these?

Even the cat had no respect!

This MAY be done…..!
