"A Single Yellow Rose"

I started this painting awhile ago and thought it was finished. I had even signed it, but felt something still needed to be done. I set it aside. In late April, I took it out again and realized what I had to do: repaint the rose petals entirely. I did so, plus I made a few other tweaks. I am now very satisfied with this painting.

It is a 4-foot tall by 3-foot wide acrylic on canvas painting. Ironically, the original objects themselves were quite small. The vase is a 4-ounce juice glass and the rose is a miniature one. I wanted them to be monumental as a painting. This piece is definitely one that would be the focal point of a room.
