Sunday Sketches

So here's another from my Sketchbook Project 2011...the theme was Make Mine A Double.

I love roses! I have 2 rose bushes. Sometimes they are out of control with roses and then other times it's zip. I'm not sure why. I take care of them the same way all the time.

Did you know what the colors of the roses mean? Here it is:

Red Roses desire, passion, courage, respect, beauty, sincerity and say "I love you". A red rosebud symbolizes purity and loveliness.

Coral Roses - desire and passion.

Lilac or Lavender Roses -love at first sight or enchantment.

Orange Roses - desire, enthusiasm and fascination.

Peach Roses - gratitude, appreciation, admiration or sympathy. Also convey sociability and friendship and send the message "Let's get together". A pale peach rose symbolizes modesty.

Pink Roses - grace, gentility and happiness and express appreciation and gratitude.

Pale Pink Roses - grace, joy, gentility and gratitude.

Light Pink Roses - happiness and fun.Also convey admiration and appreciation.

Deep Pink Roses - express appreciation, admiration, sincerity and sympathy.

White Roses -truth and innocence, silence, secrecy, reverence, humility, youthfulness and charm. A white rosebud symbolizes girlhood.

Yellow Roses - friendship and freedom, convey congratulations, joy, gladness, delight. and a new beginning. Yellow roses with red tips convey friendship and falling in love.

Dead Roses - Dead roses in any color convey "It's over!"
My favorite rose is the white rose? What's yours?

Enjoy the Sunday Sketch and for more awesome art visit

I think light pink roses are my favorite, your roses look lovely. Maybe if they get a lot of rain it helps them?
