One Rose ~ (6x6 inches acrylics on stretched canvas) To save the whole world....this idea came from the novels in Stephen King's Dark Tower series (pictured below). The one rose grows in a weedy vacant lot in the center of New York City and seems to be a key, door or portal to the Dark Tower itself. The Dark Tower series is mesmerizing and I felt inspired by the magic of that one special rose. I knew I had to try and paint my idea of what it would look like. Here's a wikipedia article link which explains more about the rose and the mission to save it. My dear friend Babs has been traveling through the Dark Tower novels too and she painted a fantastic work which depicts 'The Song of Susannah' in her blog 'Off the Wall'. Check it out!
