I spent nearly a week at my mother's in the North Woods. My mother had a beautiful bunch of off white roses setting on her dining room table. I thought it would make a great theme for one of my first published watercolors. Roses are one of the most diverse flowers to be used in floral arrangements for special occasions such as weddings, Valentine's Day, birthdays, engagements, and funerals. For Mom, it was to put a little beauty, a little comfort in her home after Dad's passing. Flowers help to cheer you up, even when you buy them for yourself. It was a sweet visit with my mother with long conversations, shopping, and meals together. I needed to see for myself that Mom was doing alright.
If you are interested in purchasing this watercolor, please contact me.
