Some days everything seems to be a delight. My daughter went on a search for a new vase and flowers this past Saturday. We stopped by several places, and when headed somewhere else, to our surprise A Date with Iris was open. I told Iris what I was looking for and she should me several things. I noticed this small vase on her counter and I let her know that a shape like that would be perfect, not to mention the reflective surface. She quickly took out the pins she had in it and handed it to me. She said "It's yours." What a wonderful surprise. The red roses I purchased from her and I think they are just gorgeous. Although, I was reminded how difficult it is to give red depth. Still, I am very pleased with the painting. I hope you enjoy it, also.
