A very colorful and fun lady came into my shop one day and among other things we were talking about painting. I told her I had a hard time painting roses. "Bring your brushes and paints tomorrow and I'll come in and show you how."
So I did and we spent a couple wonderful hours the next day and she showed me how to make rosebuds. This is them. She taught me a lot of other things about painting and she enjoyed creating vignettes in the store and showed me a lot about that, too. I never saw her again.
