This is my latest painting - a single yellow rose. I wanted to paint a yellow rose because medium, Pamela Marie Edmunds,
said that my son was handing me a single yellow rose. I knew this had
special meaning so I searched for some information on the symbolism of
flowers. The language of flowers is known as floriography and has an
interesting history; here is a link if you would like to learn more - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_of_flowers. These four lines came to me to use with the painting -
There is a language of flowers, From which we can learn, Messages and sentiments, For what our hearts yearn.
The other words I added are key words associated with yellow roses.
I am so happy with the way this turned out! This is the first flower
that I have painted. I also added some artificial greenery for a more
interesting mixed media effect. The adventure continues...
