Artist's Description

A woman in a red rose gown, holding a rose petal umbrella, gazes at her rose garden with love and healing light in her heart. This painting is a tribute to my dear friend, Brigitte, and to the glorious roses she grows in her garden in France. She has over 800 varieties of roses, tending to them herself, giving them everything she has, and they grow for her with amazing beauty and inner light. Hope you enjoy the art and story prose.

You may think this story is
A fairy tale
But every word is true
The woman in the rose gown
Knows a secret
And she will share it with you

But only if you listen
With the deepest part
Of your heart
In the place where
You can hear a flower sing
And if you’re very lucky
See a kiss fly by on petal wings.

So here is the secret
Really it’s so much more than that
When you love a rose
The rose will love you back

The woman in the rose gown knows
Because one hot summer day
After planting and pruning
Watering and feeding
Listening and speaking
And giving every single rose
Everything they might be needing
Even her tears when some refused to grow

She stood in her garden
Too tired to move
But also content as she inhaled the sweet perfume
Loving the inner light and beauty
Of every single bloom
Not caring that her clothes were dirty and torn
So happy to see another rose born

And just when she thought her roses
Could not give her more
They turned her tattered clothes
Into the flowing gown of a rose
And her sun hat
Into an umbrella of
Petals so red
Her blush went from her heart
To her rose-covered head

Of course looking at
Herself and her garden
Gave her an inner smile
For the woman in the rose gown
Knew a secret
And so much more than that
When you love a rose
The rose will love you back.
