A Painted Rose...

 "There is nothing more difficult for a truly
creative painter than to paint a rose, because
before he can do so he has first to forget
all the roses that were ever painted."

~ Henri Matisse ~

Catherine Klein is the original artist who painted these
beautiful peach roses.  Her work has been popular for more
than a century... and is it any wonder why?

Here are the free graphics sources I used:

*Vintage Images*

*Lost and Taken*

*Vintage Feedsacks*

*Altered Bits*

These images are free for
personal use ~ please enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
