I wanted to paint a rose tonight, but as luck would have it, my evening got peppered with interruptions. I put on Schubert's Symphony No. 9 in C Major, about one hour exactly and squeezed paint onto my palette. The music guided my progress. I put down values of pink, added warmth, smeared on the greens and then picked up my rubber tipped shader and squiggled to the last movement, the Allegro Vivace! Can you tell? Yikes! Talk about making a mark…

This is not my usual kind of rose, nor has it been a usual kind of day. Miss Squiggle, here, has cheered me up.
