This summer I took a lot of photos of roses and other flowers, but I still couldn't find the rose I wanted to paint. I had given up and had decided to paint another flower. I was starting to get things ready to draw the flower out when I decided to go down to the St. Albert Botanical Gardens one more time. As I walked around and took numerous photos of flowers I saw a beautiful yellow rose off in the distance in one of the flower beds. When I walked over to get a better look, I looked to the right of the yellow rose and there it was! It was perfect! Pink with a hint of yellow; dew drops hidden in it's petals and the morning sun casting wonderful shadows; I knew this was it, this was the rose.
