The Friendship Rose II by Karin Taylor.

Drawing on Paper
Photographed and painted digitally in Procreate for iPad with stylus
Textures used are four of my own photographs of damaged antiqued paper

I drew the rose a long time ago and only just got around to painting it. Named The Friendship Rose, because of the multicoloured petals, which represent people of all colour, race, religion etc

I dreamt it would be nice if one had a pin we could wear to promote peace between all individuals. I guess it would let you know that people wearing a pin like this in the street, were friendly and approachable. Just daydreaming again….lol

There are two versions of The Friendship Rose, this one and the original, which has more blue-ish tones and less texture. To view or order The Friendship Rose I please click here

    This is a beautiful representation of embracing the differences in philosophy, lifestyle, faith, and color of people everywhere. Excellent concept, Karin. I hope it is eventually made into the pin, you envision.

  • Frannie, thank you so much! That would be really special if it was! :) x
