Oil on canvas - 20" X 20"

This piece won the Patron's Award in the State Flower contest at

This was interesting to work on because this canvas has been painted on about 4 or 5 times, so it has lots of texture and undertones.

Also, for those of you who didn't know me back when, my maiden name was Rose

Thanks to Teng Tan for belated permission to use the original photo "Rose Close at Heart" as a reference for this piece.
