Watercolor Fun, inspired by a rose


Inspired by lovely pinks, oranges, creams.  Petals.

I had fun dissecting the rose petals, then layering and stacking them together.

All the while wondering how I might create an abstract.  Inspired by roses. Yet, looking nothing like a rose. Nor even a flower.

But. The colors.

Such gorgeous colors.

This was fun. It was relaxing.  There was a zen quietness and peace in the creation that I find utterly….. worthwhile.


No. It doesn’t look like a flower!!  But it certainly brings them back to remembrance.  How good is that?  Quite good enough.
