The Rose

$50.00 plus shipping
The Rose  9x12  Oils on masonite panel

The Pro Flowers web site tells us: "White roses represent innocence and purity and are traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings. The white rose is also a symbol of honor and reverence, and white rose arrangements are often used as an expression of remembrance. 

OK, so what does this white rose mean to the lady?  From her expression it might be one of an arrangement sent to her by her new found male "friend".  Or it might be that she's in her garden enjoying the scent of a fresh rose.

For me, this is a subdued painting - not a lot of color. I did put a red hair band in her hair just to ease my angst.


  1. Another fabulous painting. It is a very sacred place you visit to bring this into the world.

  2. Hi Ken,
    I think you're very good at expressions... nice work on her face, and on the rose. I like the 'subdued' colors :)

  3. My three best supporters! Thanks again.
