Here is a piece I sold at my show last spring and it is one of my personal favorites. Roses have served as spiritual symbols for many different cultures and religions throughout history and in modern times have come to symbolize love.
For me, a rose symbolizes our connection to our own hearts. The spiraling rose petals lead us to the center, our core, our soul, which is what allows us to recognize our own divinity. When we are in touch with who we truly are, we are able to be present with ourselves and in turn we can then be present in this world. With our eyes now open we can see the preciousness of everyone and everything around us. The rose is a connection and a door to the beauty, sacredness and higher calling within us all.
