This is my offering for Valentine's day. Oil on canvas technique. (One Layer, From Scratch) The last rose I did was all hatchwork and brushstrokes. This time, I went for a very Realistic look. Happy VD!!!

Rose and Bud = Famous last words.

I don't think I've been wished a happier VD since my days in the service.

(Actually merely running with your joke.)

Cool image.
