I created this up-close painting of a Pink Rose because I love all the subtle colors you see in it… peaches, reds, blues, greens, and of course, pinks. The other thing I love about roses are all their layers and folds. They are definitely a very feminine flower. If you like this one, you’ll probably like my Sunflower and Iris, too.
