On Twitter people like to do can checks, where they post pictures of this or that elaborately labeled microbrewery thing they’re drinking at that moment. Since I can’t drink, maybe I should do flower checks: I have to draw whatever’s in this container…. This is a specimen of the Peace Rose, popular at the end of World War II, and the shape of its blossoms are consistently wonderful. I drew this one from life, and it would keep blossoming after this for several days. But I like the angle of the flower here, since you can see more of the leaves, which really compliment it.
