Forgotten Rose


Forgotten Rose
23cm x 17.5cm. 9 in x 7in.
Oil gesso board.

I found this old house being slowly reclaimed by the earth, a forgotten rose still gracing the walls where once a small garden must have flourished. Coming across places like this, unexpectedly, always fills me with a strangely enjoyable melancholy.

That’s it for at least two weeks now, I need to recharge my batteries, experiment a little and explore different mediums. So that is exactly what I shall do. Bye…just for a bit!

Have a nice time - and remember to put your feet up and smell those roses too! ;)
