"The Rose"

I have a whole new appreciation for floral painters!  This is a totally new subject matter for me.  It was tougher than I thought.  A lot of small shapes that have to be drawn well, or else they don't read.  As when drawing people or animals, even being a little off with your drawing is something that just won't fly.  Having said that, I can see myself going for more of this.  It was a lot of fun to paint!  Simplification was  an important component here.  Conclusion: More IS Less.  Suggestion is more interesting than complete disclosure.
