Roses on Grandma's Quilt

Her quilts are old and frayed, but I display my grandmother's quilts in my bedroom. I bought some roses to photograph with them and began a series utilizing the roses, quilts and other objects she left to me. By the time I did several, I decided "yes, I can paint roses" and it may be time to move on to something else! But I have more pictures planned utilizing my "treasures" - which have no monetary value but they mean something to me.
This painting (watercolor on Arches 140CP paper) won 3rd place in watermedia in a regional show.
