White Rhapsody Rose Arbor is the daily newbie in Flower Mound Studio, the landscapes are still calling my name and rose arbors are one of my favorite things to paint (and photograph) in the whole wide world.

Once we were all set up and happy, content with knowing the owner of the property was quite happy we were painting his flowers, the neighbor's sprinkler system went off, making us all run for high ground.
