Yellow roses have always been my favorite, possibly because of the sweet smell of peaches some of them have. This particular rose felt so soft and lush to me. The petals, as I painted them. seemed almost like lovely yellow clouds as they softly unfolded themselves.

The Peace Rose has always been one of my favorite roses. I love the variations in color as the bud opens from pinks on the outside to the yellows and creams inside as the the buds open. I like to meditate on peace as I enter the image and get lost in its many layers.
This original one of a kind pastel painting ships mounted on foamcore and wrapped in tracing paper to protect the pastel drawing. It arrives with a pre-cut white mat and self-adhesive spacers to mount on the back of the mat to keep it raised slightly from the painting surface itself, one technique recommended when framing a pastel (instructions are included). The matted painting will fit in a standard 20" x 16" frame to make it easy to frame. (Frame is not provided.)
