I have one passion : Roses.
They grow in my garden. I love painting them in watercolour.

Sadly I did not have much time to paint roses in 2016.
Spring was appalling! wet and cold.
Roses were late to come. Afterwards I was too busy.

However, this year is different. I am going to have an explosion of roses in the garden.

I will start with this one:

It was a matter of time before someone asks me if I have been published. I have had so many demands in the past by supporters of my work...

Well the answer is No, I have not been published.

But, with advice from a friend, I created a book that is now available.
I have received a copy and am very proud to publicise it.

Great printing. The perfect little gift for a friend or a mum...

If you click on the picture, the link will take you to the book.
You will be able to turn the pages and decide if you want to buy it.
There is a choice of SoftCover, ImageWrap or DustJacket, all at different prices.

Getting ready for the season 2016

I am hoping to have once more a rewarding year.
I am not talking about my paintings but roses.

I think I cannot live without them. I have quite a few bushes and climbers
around the garden.
Last year, I have planted three more, this when I thought there was no more place.
Well today, I have found I could grow another climber!

So, Winter is over, today the first day of Spring.
I have cut back my roses and fed them.
I now hope for the best.

Below are some photos of last year roses
As you can see, plenty of inspiration for watercolour paintings!

Les fruits de l'été

I wonder if I will never tire to paint roses.

There they are growing in my garden. I cannot resist it.

I enjoy so much looking at them!

This watercolour is freshly finished.

When all Winter I dream of roses... when they finally arrive... 

I just have to paint them again and again!

Embroidery and roses

Once upon a time I used to find time to do embroidery.

I still have one on the go!

I thought to display together roses and my embroidery.
