WHY ROSES?

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

ROSES WITH COFFEE BEANS

I love setting a still life with roses and new ideas!

Friends asked me to reproduce their favourite rose that had followed them 
wherever they moved.

I suggested to add some personal items. They had a beautiful old coffee grinder.
Just perfect!

I search on the internet for photos of coffee beans and found out 
the pods of the beans are actually red when not dried.

I love a bit of red in my paintings. I added the little Dutch cup, very much in touch with the lady being from the country.
