Golden Rose



I’ve had this drawing finished for a while now. Been focusing on a lot of other things as well. That’s why this drawing is being posted a little late.

I wish I could draw and draw continuously and never stop drawing. To finish a drawing is quite challenging you never really know when the drawing is “complete” or “finished.” You just listen to your heart and the heart knows. That’s all I have to say.

The colors in this drawing are quite different compared to every other piece of art I have created. This drawing was more of a challenge than I thought. I knew using goldish, yellowish, tan and brown colors would be very challenging. I was up for the challenge.

I attempted my best with each tone and each color. To match the shades the best I can. Blending all the colors into one creating a whole picture. Many layers of different colors.

Each drawing I have to challenge myself in a new way. Something different compared to the last creation.

Now I’ll explain what this drawing resembles or means. This is just my interpretation. Possibly you’ll think something different compared to what I think. That’s okay, we don’t all have to think the same. Art gives you the freedom to think differently.

What does this golden rose mean to me? What’s the story behind and within this drawing? Well, I’ll attempt my best to explain my thoughts. Here I go….

Each life is planted with a seed. As we grown and learn all about living this life. We all grow and expand at different frequencies and energies. Each seed being different and no seed alike. But ironically we’re all quite similar. All a seed and all a flower.

Each day and moment this flower grows and dies. You can feed the flower or kill the flower. Love makes the flower grow and hatred makes the flower die. The definition of hatred and love is different for all souls.

In life, there are many aspects we have to focus on to become the greatest version we seek within. Or possibly you seek nothing. This adventure of a life and nothing excites you. That would be quite a boring and dull life.

Do you wish for a flower full of love and high positive energy? This flower grows with mass amounts of beauty. Nothing is stopping it to grow to it’s highest potential. The only thing stopping the flower from growing to it’s fullest potential is thyself. This flower is in meditation and lets everything “be.”

There’s a second flower. This flower is slowly dying of hatred and many other things. Each day this flower declines in energy and is fed with negativity. Never happy no matter what happens. No one besides thyself can create love. Love is from within. Ego controls this flower full of hatred. You can’t control the growth of the flower or the direction. That just happens and the leaves grow as they please.

Your soul is your seed. The seed never stops growing. You either grow with love or you grow with hatred. Each day the flower raises in energy or drops in energy.

At the end of life, you can become any flower you want. That’s just all up to thyself.

Life is nothing but a dream. Grow that flower of yours to the best potential.

Are you the greatest you that you can be?

Or do you just get by each day in a comfortable mindset? With no challenge or growth.

You have to be challenged to grow. Negative experiences make you grow into a stronger you. Without negativity, there wouldn’t be positivity. Appreciate both.

The final words I wish to say.

The golden rose you see within the drawing. This can be anyone and all souls. We all have the potential to grow and become whatever we wish. Light or dark.

We are all this golden flower in my eyes. Ying and Yang.

Grow your flower with love and ignore the hatred my friend.

I rather choose love over hatred. We need hatred to know what not to do.

Hatred comes and goes.

The love stays and is forever.

I look at this image and see bits and pieces of myself. I’m not perfect and neither are you.

We can all live with a golden soul. A loving heart.

Each day you can become a greater you and that’s all on thyself. There’s no one to blame, don’t point that finger at anyone but yourself.

Grow your seed with love or hatred and see where the journey takes you.

Goodluck growing your flower.

    • Hahaha. πŸ˜‰

      True that is relative.

      Thanks for your input on the drawing.

      That is my goal to be honest. I always confuse the viewers.

      Happy to know you enjoy the process as much as I do.


  2. Really interesting technique and feel. Do you use math in your geometrics. Knowing when a piece is finished is tricky, as an artist myself I struggle with this as well. I love how you talk about the emotion in this piece I never thought this style could evoke so much emotion.

    I blog about art as well, it would mean a lot if you checked out my site:

    • I appreciate your thoughts on the artwork. πŸ™‚

      No I don’t even use a straight edge or ruler. All free hand.

      Yes, as artists we never know when the final product is actually finished.

      The mind just has to relax sometimes, hahahah.

      Happy to know you enjoyed reading the message behind the art as well.

      There are many hidden meanings begin my art.

      I’ll attempt my best to check out your blog soon. I’ll take a screen shot of this comment and look back on it later.

      Thank you for the encouraging words.

      Just have to be yourself in this world where people follow each other.

      Instead you have to be yourself. That is the the most challenging thing to do.

      Be yourself.

    • Yeah no problem. On my free time I browse through random blogs.

      Remember anything is possible you have to believe within yourself first.

      We all start somewhere. Just keep believing and pursuing your dreams.

      Thank you!

      Great way to put it. Exactly the art the artist creates is the reality of the artist themselves.


      Much love!
