The fragrance of the rose, remains on the hand that gives it. - Unknown
I took a risk cutting my long stemmed valentine roses. Whew,
I was relieved it worked out and liked it so much in this vase,
I painted it. The rich bordeaux red with the touch of light has this elusive feel of burnished gold roses.

From Edith J. Carrier Arboretum and Botanical Gardens at JMU :
"Weather is beautiful today, warm, sunny. just right for a visit to the arboretum to enjoy the exhibit of paintings of Nadia Louderback. The exhibit is open 8 am to 4 pm weekdays. Stop in Soon. You'll feel the unique power behind how Nadia uses color to create her floral subjects when you first step foot into the Ed Center. Her exhibit gives a visual RUSH, that you won't want to miss! It feels like there is sunshine INSIDE the building with this exhibit. Come and feel the rush yourself... soon"
Thank you Gail Turnbull and staff at Arboretum for your support. The exhibition will hang through the month of April.
