My favourite inspirational sketch book

Do you have an all time favourite book?
Here's mine, it was presented to my Grandmother in 1917 for appreciation of her services in a Kindergarten Sunday School.
I can't tell you how many sketches I've worked on based from this book over the years

I had a timber hook board which needed a little something added on. Why not paint something completely different to my usual favourite roses I ask myself. I've based my painting above on a water colour from my favourite book, I love the end result of my Secret Arched Garden....only trouble is I have to reattach the hooks to the timber plaque, I think it may spoil it, I'm just looking at my photo above as I type and can see I've made a mistake by signing my name right under where one of the hooks needs to be reattached...hmmm maybe I could fill the hook holes ... yes and have it as a painting after all ....we'll see

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend
