Here are those pretty white roses again. I kept them in the fridge to keep the fresh. I love the texture in the paint strokes. They create a sense of movement and are interesting and beautiful in themselves.
White Roses signify remembrance for a loved one lost. I found these on a path near Beacon Hill Park yesterday and knew I had to paint them. While I painted them today I heard the gun salute from the ceremony in front of the Parliament Building.
