What is it about roses? Especially the really red ones? I know that they are so evoking of love and passion, that's what I think of when I see one. Yet if I see a white rose, sweet and purity. Same flower shape and blossom, just change the color and you feel something different. As long as you love flowers, and even some that don't roses keep stealing ones heart when you see them. Giving them to someone else, let's you share some love. I could look at roses all day and not get tired of them. This is a digital painting I did of a rose using my electronic art tablet (Wacom) and Painter IX.5. Not a manipulation.
