This painting was done from a photograph. It appeals to me because of the window. As an artist I often work alone in my studio and I paint in front of the window looking out to the world. It's a happy place because I am doing what I love, but it is often lonely too. I am very thankful for my painting time but most of all for the times I spend with my family and friends. They are the roses in my life and are all very special to me.
