About the Picture

The secrets of romance are never revealed. A puzzling box engraved with a swirling pattern adorns a woman's dresser. A perfume dispenser and a vase of roses complete the setting. Again the focus is on the vibrancy of colour. The paisleyesque swirls remind me of my childhood. The picture is for me a view of adulthood seen through a child's eyes.
