Christmas roses #449

Daily painting #449 6"x6" oil on primed canvas panel

I bought some beautiful soft roses thinking they would last through Christmas but it has been so hot that they are wilting and even buds that haven't yet opened are drooping in the vase. Such a pity...but I should have known...roses in our humid summer heat do not last long! As a matter of fact I can relate...I feel a bit like those wilting roses! Today was sweltering hot and we all wallowed around in the warm swimming pool a bit like the hippos we saw in the rivers last week! I think we are going to have a very hot Christmas. So much for snowmen, snowflakes and icicles hanging on my Christmas tree...and as for Santa....he needs to loose the long pants and mittens, find some baggies (swimming trunks) and a pair of sunglasses....it's going to be Christmas in the sun!
