"A Rose Is" by Carol Thompson

"A rose is'; beautiful, fragrant, fleeting, colorful, full of promise, symbolic, given, received, treasured, and much more."

Artist comment:  "This white rose is all of those things, plus purity and virtue. As long as there have been roses, there have been lovers who have given and received them and the message they carry. I have my favorites, and the white rose is at the top of the list. I have grown them successfully in my garden in containers and/or deep in the nourishing soil. Rose plants are long-lived. New hybrids are being developed to resist pests and diseases.. I have painted many roses in my career. Continuing that tradition, I present this white rose. I sketched it on canvas board en plein air from my garden. I completed the piece alla prima. The result is fresh and invigorating."
