I'm finding that painting from life is definitely the best way to paint. I purchased these beautiful peachy roses and blue delphiniums from a local florist. It is definitely not the most economical way to paint but I am not a gardener. I am also not a cook (though that's a story for another day!). Being a flower gardener means being vigilant, especially with roses. I grow things best that require total neglect.
