Original Contemporary floral painting of a white rose
A work of art is the trace of a magnificent struggle"
~ Robert Henri
And boy did I struggle with this one. I struggled and struggled until I wiped off the whole thing and took a break. I went for a walk and re-evaluated the idea. Was it worth pursuing? Was it really a good idea? My instinct told me it was. So I re-evaluated the composition. I initially had the setup a bit lower so that I was looking down on it more. I changed it to a higher viewpoint and felt like I could try it again. I worked very carefully this time, squinting a lot to look at shadow and light areas and finally managed to pull it off. So here is my work of art :). This beautiful rose stuck with me and did not wither away through my entire day of struggle. Hence the name.
This is part of my collection of little treasures. These are just perfect to give as a gift or to spruce up any little or big space including your work desk.
This painting ships with a display easel. No frame required.
