Two more pictures!

10 comments


Although I have many pictures, these two are my favourites. The one with the roses I painted for a special friend who sadly died a few years ago and as I had painted quite a few pictures for her over the years, her daughter after clearing my friend’s little bungalow brought them back to me. So now every time I look at this I will think of Betty!


Unfortunately the picture of the first one is not as bright as it should be. I am having problems getting pictures from my camera to the chrome book and when I do, it takes ages to actually find them!
So frustrating!
The second one was at East Bergholt, Constable country. I took my pad and sketched the picture, took a photo and then painted it at home.
Take care every one and stat safe!

Such talent, Rose. It is a true cottage garden. We went to Bergholt a little while go and loved the area. You've caught it well.

Yes, I particularly like the second one. My dad used to take landscape photos in the summer and then spend the winter months painting watercolours of them.
He is gone now but I still have some of his paintings on my bedroom walls. Lovely memories.

I'm sorry to learn your friend has died but it's nice that her daughter gave them back to you. It's good to do something special for a friend :)
