I painted this for my mom. She treasures a memory of me as a little girl, dressed in pink, claiming to be pink as a rose. Therefore pink roses are a reminder of her little daughter and she asked me to paint some for her.

In Romania, away from my home studio, I had to work with natural light only and loved it! Now I have to figure out how to do this in my studio at home, where I have been using both natural and electric light, in a room with windows in too many directions. Always learning, always adjusting, or better to say simplifying. A quote from Brancusi, a famous Romanian sculptor, comes to mind: “Simplicity is complexity resolved”. This may very well sum up my present aspirations.
