Stolen Blossoms is a new little rose painting in the studio and comes with a bit of a confession. Or a question rather. If your neighbor's climbing yellow roses drape beautifully and dramatically over the fence and into your back yard, is it okay to cut a few and use them as studio models? Is this infringement on neighbor gardening copyright perhaps? I'm already finding ways to justify my flower philandering - if I make a pretty little print card out of the painting and present the card to the neighbors as a gift, would that make my wayward behavior more socially acceptable? What if I admitted I waited until after dark to clip the roses. Does that make me even more guilty?

The studio models take a bow (and one collapses...)

Oh ! ma chère Nancy je ne pense pas que votre voisin vous fasse un procès! Il doit même être honorer d'apprendre que ses roses aient été capturer par une si talentueuse artiste.
J'ai aussi une autre version ! celle que vos charmantes roses aient eu envie de ce faire peindre... alors elles viennent plonger dans votre jardin.
J'aime la manière qu'elles ouvrent leur coeur... Vous avez su peindre toute leur fraîcheur.
Gros bisous et bonne journée.

Nancy, your sense of humor always tickles me. I am surprised to know these are roses. I tend to not seem them full blown like this, unless this is a different variety. I can tell it is a rose by that poor fallen creature on the table though. They sure made for a beautiful painting! I love the fresh colors!
