    Thaw,

    This painting has a wonderful, elegant simplicity. It reminds me of a scene in Oscar Wilde’s play – The Importance of Being Earnest:

    Cecily. How thoughtless of me. I should have remembered that when one is going to lead an entirely new life, one requires regular and wholesome meals. Won’t you come in?
    Algernon. Thank you. Might I have a buttonhole first? I never have any appetite unless I have a buttonhole first.
    Cecily. A Marechal Niel? [Picks up scissors.]
    Algernon. No, I’d sooner have a pink rose.
    Cecily. Why? [Cuts a flower.]
    Algernon. Because you are like a pink rose, Cousin Cecily.
    Cecily. I don’t think it can be right for you to talk to me like that. Miss Prism never says such things to me.
    Algernon. Then Miss Prism is a short-sighted old lady. [Cecily puts the rose in his buttonhole.]

    Excellently painted, Thaw. I especially like the angle… a rose portrait profile.
