Yellow Rose Series, #1 – acrylic painting

Yellow roses are an expression of exuberance. Yellow roses evoke sunny feelings of joy, warmth and welcome. They are symbols of friendship and caring

In my research I found several different meanings/symbolism’s for the yellow rose – this particular meaning stuck with me and it voices how I feel about the friendships developed over the last 7 years through WP blog.

Yellow Rose, Series #1 (acrylic painting) was painted on canvas using mainly golden and liquitex brand paints.  I used a photograph taken of roses from my garden (before the rosette disease destroyed the bush – so sad because each year the bush was flush with very large gorgeous yellow roses).

Over the years many photographs were taken of my yellow roses that would be great painting references, so I decided to do a small series on yellow roses ~ perhaps 5 or so paintings over the course of the next 6 months.  At least that’s the plan/goal.

Thank you for visiting and hope, my blogging friends, you have a Merry Christmas ~ best wishes for a wonderful 2020.  (click onto the image for a larger view)

      Thank you so much Patricia – they really do spread happiness. Merry Christmas to you and only the best wishes for a wonderful New Year – here comes 2020!

  17. It’s beautiful! I like the delicate tone of the rose. We have a yellow rose in a pot on the terrasse! But very difficult to keep healthy! So far so good! In spite of the season there is still one flower left.
    I wish you a Christmas full of joy and serenity and a 2020 with many satisfactions, positive emotions and much health! With friendship 🙂

      Such a beautiful post Robert – thank you so much for your kind words. Yellow roses are a gorgeous flower and I’ll bet is only more so in your pot. I really miss our beautiful blooming bush (3 great flushes each year). Thank you also for your special Christmas greeting ~ Merry Christmas to you and yours and best wishes for a peaceful and healthy new year my friend.

  18. And a very merry Christmas and happy new year to you and your family too, Mary. 🎄🎅🥂😊
