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.
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.
