Client: Personal work
Date: October 2018

After travel I returned home to spring, showing itself in explosions of newness.

Perhaps the most outstanding was the single rose, fresh with life after a harsh prune some months before.

This strikingly determined flower, a survivor amongst harsh conditions, yet so radiant in it’s vulnerability.

The Rose, able to withstand rough treatment while maintaining exquisite tenderness.

If the Rose could talk, what would it teach us?
