I was asked to create an artwork by Thornton Brothers Roses of Thirlmere. The orange rose was hard to photograph against a white backdrop to capture all the detail. The low winter sun cast a shadow on the panel. On viewing the image on the computer, the shadow looked like another person. so the stick figure was added and the composition of a group of people set the scene Rosie showing off her pose!
"Go fetch the stick" is the partner using a red rose in the black vase.
