This started with a sheet of my piano music for Bette Midler’s “The Rose”. I added texture, copied a rose from my own photo collection, added a shadow, sized and signed in Photoshop Elements 9.
The sentence “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.” was written by Gertrude Stein as part of the 1913 poem Sacred Emily, which appeared in the 1922 book Geography and Plays. In that poem, the first “Rose” is the name of a person. Stein later used variations on the sentence in other writings, and “A rose is a rose is a rose” is probably her most famous quotation, often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are,” a statement of the law of identity. from Widipedia
