"Wild Rose" by Astrid Paustian
Small flower and bird studies are a wonderful way for me to relax and meditate. I usually work from my own photographs. This one was taken during the early summer in out beautiful Xeric garden. The roses bloomed in gorgeous shades of yellow, orange and red, and they are relatively drought tolerant. This dry summer everything has been needing a little extra water, of course.
