Happy Valentine's Day! Oh-so-many years ago, I painted roses, roses, and more roses while doing greeting card work for Papyrus....at that time Shurman Fine Papers. Roses are complex. And they are difficult. I don't particularly favor them, but they are certainly appropriate for the season. Actually, I thought that I had had my fill. In painting them, I try to understand their construction and have found that painting individual leaves (at first) is the way to proceed. This little ditty was painted as an exercise, a discipline. Understanding their construction helps us to understand other kinds of folds and other kinds of complexity.
