The first thing I did was go directly to the site. Itís very enjoyable. The roses are beautiful, and it was perfect timing, because they were all in bloom.

I always try for a sense of beauty and grace in my work, so this was a good poem to work with. The words spoken through the poem were words that I feel Iíve spoken through my paintbrush. So I immediately felt a connection.

The girl there, by that delicate rose, evokes a sense of purity. Innocence, in a way, is what I was trying to capture. Thatís the message that the poem seemed to emit.

I feel Iíve visually communicated that. I just wanted the piece to be as sweet as the poem, and as sweet as the garden itself.
