You study, you learn, but you guard the original naivete. It has to be within you, as desire for drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover.

“Safrano Roses at the Window” is perhaps my favorite for those delicious pink roses gathered within that luscious cacophony of the same pink in it’s many wonderful shades, both inside and outside the window!

    There are indeed always flowers for those who want to see them. It’s just that there’s been more smog in recent times. I too love the pink roses image. He was a master.

    Looks like my wordpress login has disappeared. sigh.. Trying big g instead.

      Hello my dear…. Apologies because I’ve been meaning to write you for many weeks. Stuff keeps happening that prevents it but maybe later tonight. Thank you for stopping by and aren’t those pink roses, no, the whole painting, glorious?? I had to change the comment setting to moderate so on your first comment but then it should just let you thru. I see crow up there so don’t think it lost you… I still have issues with G. Stupid things…. xxx

    He really had a way with pink, didn’t he? I like pink but I don’t think I’ve actually ever used much of it.
    I hope you’re well 💕 and that Spring visits you soon.
