Bargain Roses from Hoogvliet no 4


I have a friend who occasionally buys himself wilting bunches of cut-price flowers and brings them into the studio, If I turn up he pretends they were for me and I pretend to believe him. Then I get my own back by making paintings of them (Bargain Roses from Hoogvliet No 4, oil on canvas, 40 x 40 cms May 2008) such as this affectionate little scribble from this morning.
