More roses from my yard. This time I set them in a vintage green syrup pitcher - or maybe it's a creamer. It anchors down a card I've long treasured, of Degas' drawing/pastel called The Laundress. I've always loved her expression. She looks up from her ironing as if she has just spotted the viewer. I'm happy with this painting.
Comment by email: Hi Marie, Your painting is magnificent! You have inspired me to do paintings featuring a Matisse and this same degas painting that I have always loved. Jane
