The new idea at Mottisfont is that the roses I paint in the garlands on the floorcloth should the ones for which Mottisfont is world famous. Therefore David, the head gardener arrived with the real thing for me to copy. so everyone who comes to Mottisfont Abbey will be shown the famous roses on the floorcloth I have painted. No room for error! Don't even think of failure, girl. You are the heir of Whistler. For Mottisfont Abbey is the place where Whistler made a most exquisite trompe l'oeil room, and somehow this is the heights I have to aspire to... Oh ,well I WILL do my best in the face of rather formidable anticedents. Please wish me well, oh unknown reader of this blog!
