Watercolour on Saunders Waterford
I was born in Picardy (Picardie in French).

My love for roses has been with me since I was a young girl.
It was time that I create a painting combining the two elements.
Roses of Picardy is a balade created around 1914

  • Thank you dear Sue :) You have noticed the same provenance of the pots… Quimper. Hum yes it is July isn’t. Would like to read the reaction :)

    And what a gorgeous combination you created Beatrice. Doesn’t it seem easier to paint the things we love so much. Very beautiful work.

  • Thank you dear Jim. Oh yes, you are so right. When we love a subject, it just flows doesn’t?

    This reminds me of an old song “Roses are shining in Picardy in the hush of the silvery dew”
    I think that is the way it goes!!! A beautiful painting Beatrice!!! Bill

  • Thank you Bill for this lovely compliment. I actually done this painting with the song in mind. If you look at the description, there is a link with Frank Sinatra singing the balad :)
