A Painter's Perquisite is a re-working just done today of a new photo. I'm clearly stuck on my preference for lavender/blue right now. Ah, well, what's wrong with enjoying myself a bit? (That seems to be a theme. It cropped up in a dream recently.) I do like the original color of this rose -- a very pale pink -- but it seemed to want to go somewhere else (pardon all this personification), to fly off into some other realm. So, I obliged it in this version. I also like the shapes those petals make against the background. But in the original color they look rather more ragged than about to take off in flight.
