Blue Rose by robertsloan2 Blue Rose by robertsloan2
Prismacolor on paper, 9 x 12"

This is the Blue Rose drawing that I bartered for my newest glass paperweight. I considered putting it into another category because of the knotwork border and its fantasy color, but finally reading the "Still Life" description decided my florals belong in it. I did the border freehand and it's not as mechanically perfect as if I'd drafted it with a ruler and set of curves, but I like that asymmetry in it. The stem of the rose grows out of the bottom border as if grafted on because that just felt right. So this rose is magical and part fantasy as well as still life. I could see writing this rose into a magical text in a fantasy novel as a quest object. It also reminded me a little of Mucha posters once I got the borders in.
