Although not originally intended as such, this piece is a companion piece to Yellow Rosebud
While “Yellow Rosebud” was painted when I thought I had come out of a depression, “Red Rosebud” was painted during a time I knew I was struggling with a serious depression. Few things can motivate me to function at a level higher than hiding from the world during a depression. Painting is one of those things and helps, ever so briefly, to give me focus other than the pain—even when painting about or because of the pain.
