Roses and thorns

pink rose impressionist watercolor 5x7 matted 8x10 2

I’ve never been very successful at growing roses,
but I thought it might be fun to try painting some this past weekend.

Roses remind me of love,
of Mother’s Day,
of Romeo and Juliet,
of Valentines and fragrance and summertime.

Roses also remind me that there is always two ways to look at things…

Roses have thorns…
or
Thorns have roses!

May you see roses in all of your thorns.

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. What a nice way to look at it! “Thorns have rose” rather than “roses have thorns,” puts the emphasis on the positive. I also love roses, but have very limited success in growing them. Your pictures capture their beauty perfectly!
