Happy Valentines day to all my blog readers. Whether you are a romantic or not painting roses is such a fabulous way to spend time. I do love that my " Painting Roses" posts on my blog have become so popular. So to celebrate this day of all days, when roses are important, here are a few of my happiest memories and favourite watercolour paintings of roses.
