Roses represent both romance and passion. An image of a rose speaks volumes, conveying many emotions linked to our yearning for love, even our sense of mortality.
Whenever I am fortunate to have a vase of roses in the house, I take the opportunity to draw and/or paint them, they are beautiful through every stage, from full bloom, then fading, to drooping and dying, still retaining their distinctive shape.
An image of a rose is also a decor accent that brings warmth, joy or poignancy and makes a space more inviting.
