oil on board, 18x24"
I normally don't paint the same image twice but my first small study of this was so lovely (and sold right away) that I wanted to do an extra large version of it when I had the time. Here it is. I remember buying this peace rose maybe 5 years ago and being amazed at how radiant it was. In planting it in the ground we were putting a wish for peace out into the world... and now, even here in this painting, the wish still carries on.
