About the painting

I enjoy how roses have different meanings based on their color, including red roses symbolizing romance and yellow roses representing friendship.

I spent a lot of time studying a bouquet of roses I bought my wife, and my first effort of painting them featured a vertical view of the roses and stems and the vase that held them. I wanted to try something different the second time around; I used an overhead view and made the yellow rose the painting’s central focus. It was special for me to explore the yellow rose’s subtle colors and shadows.



This is an original watercolor painting that I completed in mid-2023. It will come matted in white, unframed, and ready to be framed in a standard frame. The painting measures 12x16 and the matte is 16x20.


Helping a good cause

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which aims to cure and control cystic fibrosis and improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The disease affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 people in the United States. Funds and organizations devoted to raising money for CF research and the foundation have often been called “65 Roses,” representing a child’s pronunciation of the disease.
