Made with graphite pencils, charcoal and color pencils.

This was my title work for my very first exhibition. My concept behind this is that the rose is representing me. The thorns are everything that I've gone through and is reflected in what I draw. So the whole concept with that exhibition was to express what has shaped me to who I am and what I feel. Sounds kinda selfish but that's what my art is mostly about, to express myself and my feelings. I believe art is the best therapy!

Hope you like!:rose:

I'm flattered and I appreciate that you're asking:) (not everyone does that, I have discovered this picture is very popular to put different kind of quotes on, without my knowledge) So I really appreciate it!
And if it would have been almost every other picture I might have approved. But this work is so old now that unfortunately the high resolution scan of it has gone missing and this is in no shape for showing up. I am a perfectionist so I could not do that.

Thanks for respecting it!
The thing is I just found it used and stolen on both a website and posted on facebook. I have never approved of such use, so if you seen anything like it, I would appreciate if you told me:)
