Red Red Rose
Oil on canvas 12” x 16”
This unique original oil painting captures the delicate heart of a red rose, with vibrant hues and textured brush strokes. The interplay of light with strong shadows in the background adds to its depth. I have loved roses since I was a small child. I am saddened that their natural fragrance has been bred out. When I came upon this rose it was of an older lineage and smelled wonderful. I felt compelled to preserve the memory.
