About This Painting

When I visited my mother not long ago, she had this dainty, little, miniature rose bush growing in a wicker "pot" sitting on the upper-right of her baby grand piano.

At 78, she still plays piano by ear, and by score, and her home is always impeccably neat and welcoming. Gardening and music are her life.

I set the roses on the keys, and the two just seemed to feels at home together. It looked like a romantic painting already.
