My Sweet Rose

This is completely off-topic... but I thought I'd like to share this with you ...

This is my all-time favourite painting (by my all-time favourite artist, John William Waterhouse). Absolutely outstanding and touching... And, of course, there are flowers in it :)

Although I love most of the Pre-Raphaelites, J.W.Waterhouse's works are perhaps the best of the lot - a 'combination of mythology, poetry and mystique femme fatale'

Hi Rasa! I haven't seen you for a long time. Hope you had a nice summer. This is a beautiful painting. I will try not to forget to smell my roses today. They are still blooming.

Hello Tatyana :) it is nice to hear from you. The summer's been great, unfortunately, way too short.

You are right, we should not forget to smell the roses, while they are still blooming. Interestingly enough, there is another beautiful painting by JW Waterhouse 'Gather ye rosebuds while ye may...'

Regards, Rasa
