A rose is a rose is a rose and by any other name is a rose.

This is a painting I did for my wife for Valentine's day. Why buy a rose when you can paint a rose.

That's the problem with flowers, Jimmy...they are expensive and are dead way too soon.

Cynthia, always!...I love to take the time not only to smell roses but also a good Italian salami. Fennel salami is one of my favorites.
