I worked on this new piece last night. I was experimenting with texture, color, and style. After working on it for a bit, I realized how far I have come as an artist and how much I have yet to learn. I remember when I was a little girl I would try to replicate my mom's rose drawings and now here I am years later with the same passion to evolve. I started painting about five years ago and I am enjoying every part of it. This painting is called Evolve. The budding rose in this painting represents myself as an artist and the wings coming out of the stem represents my aspiration to grow as an artist.
