"The Only Rose" --- Sold


I have a rose bush in my yard, given me many beautiful flowers last year. I painted quite a few of them. But for some reason, it did bloom this year. It grew a lot of leaves and thorns but no flower. I almost give up on it.... But finally, I saw a small bud yesterday. This morning it turns into a beauty. I have to paint it. It is the ONLY rose. So here it is.
2008 is a difficult year to many people. Many suffered due to natural disasters, wars, and economical crisis. Life is full of thorns. But we shouldn't give up the hope. We will hang in there waiting the only rose blooming. It will come, and there will be many more to follow.

Wonderful thoughts! Thank you for giving me a silver lining for all the terrible thinks that have been occuring in the world. Hope is everything! And as always, your painting is fab!

When I open the daily painters page, your painting always draws my eye, as this one did today.

I also visited your portrait link. You do fine, fine work!

What can I say? Stunning work. I love it, particularly the sharp brushwork and the foliage at the lower right. Wonderfully abstracted! Wish I had some extra money, I'd bid on this one. ;)
