A Yellow Rose

I had a trade set up in Illustrated ATCs with Bonnie (Balletbon) for a 4"x4" rose, and with the holidays and job hunting I'd been dragging my feet with trades and swaps. Inspiration finally came today and I worked on a yellow rose for her based in one of the pics I took from my Mom's roses (read previous post). I chose the yellow rose because yellow roses carry such a beautiful meaning of sunshine and general happiness. I used watercolor paper, watercolors and white ink for this.

You can take a look at the beautiful Sunflower Bonnie did for me here.
