Peace Rose

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.

5 1/2 x 8 inches, pencil on paper, from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted,  signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock, in a limited edition run of 50.  I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
