Roses are red

These are not Valentine roses but a bouquet from a thoughtful friend received on Sunday. Right now I am comforted by the presence of these beautiful flowers smelling the sweet fragrance in the air.
Here before me is a good subject for painting but I just could not get myself to start. Why? Painting is very energy draining. It is enjoyable, at the same time all-consuming. Time, energy, concentration, mind and heart have to be there to paint. I am unable to muster all that is required to paint. Is this some kind of a block? Perhaps.
Perhaps I should start with just a stalk of rose. Perhaps.
