A Rose

I am not great at painting a rose.  I have tried a few times and they always turn out a bit more like a tulip or maybe even a weed.   It’s a good thing that I like to paint and I don’t mind if something is a bit of a flop.  Even when a painting isn’t great, I learn a lot and keep at it.

This rose below took awhile to get right.  I have seen many that are far more impressive than what I have done of course.  I painted this using acrylics on stretched canvas.  It was a combination of light brown, yellow white, dark green and black.  My hats off to painters that do it much better.

May you have time to smell the roses today.
