The rose atop a stem of thorns; what a contrast, delicate beyond description to sharp pointed thorns quick to cut to bring forth life itself. Petals of every color imaginable from dark blues to rich reds and yellow.
This painting was the first I painted after 25 years of not picking up a brush to paint. This challenge brought to me from a 92-year-old former student. Who said that if I didn’t paint, our time together would come to an end. I believe that God used this to show me that His’ gifts are always there, whether we use them or not. It is far better to use your gift as it will bring you back to the favor of God.
