Stealing Roses Again

There’s a mysterious house on my block that has been empty but well maintained for several years. The mailman delivers mail and the gardening service keeps things nice and neat but I never see anyone go in or out.

Their roses and fruit trees are blooming but there’s nobody home to enjoy them. So I stopped by with my scissors to give the roses a little respect by painting them, even if it means stealing them (as I’ve done before). These were yummy fun to paint!

    I’ve just had a very interesting catchup which has involved theft, an enigmatic Asian man, a tow truck, and hungover party peps. What’s next I wonder?!

    Great drawings throughout!
