The Rose

This high texture piece was incredibly fun. I started off by treating watercolor paper by alternating between water sprays and white spray paint. I then painted the mountain with a gold tip. Before it was completely dry I pressed the entire painting against a dry sheet of paper. This press is how I was able to get an earthy texture. The last thing I did was add the rose in full bloom at the mountain's summit.

The Rose as sung by Bette Midler

"When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose"
