Last Year's Valentine Roses by Thomas Barker-Detwiler

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Roses that I could not throw out from last year. They still retain their beauty as an old dowager, fade in color but together and erect.

  • Thank you, Loree. These still sit on my desk. I’m either sentimental or lazy.

    this is so BEAUTIFUL, Tom!! Did you perhaps dry them in gylcerin; they seem to have somehow retained their
    colors and shape. Quite lovely….
    Congrats on your Feature.

  • Sass, they are in my studio where there is little natural light. They just stay that way. Only flowers I was ever given ;-(

    ;( It is a pity that men are not supposed to be given flowers; the audacity of such drivel just drives me WILD!!
    And not in a good way. Beauty is beauty…and all humans need beauty But I’m preaching to the choir…I know, I know.
    Anyway, when my Papah was alive, I often gave him flowers in his later years. When he received his first arrangement, tears came to his eyes and gruffness to his throat….and he had a mild protest…for a moment…
    and then a soft smile came to his lips. After that, I never heard another protest. I love crushing such silly ‘rules’…you know?
    Well, now that I’ve written a book here, I’ll decamp and wish you a great weekend, Tom;))

  • Had to wait a bit to respond. I was so immensely touched by the gift but also took a minute to allow it to show. Sometimes men are idiots!
