This painting was started in 2009 and finished in 2011. When I started the painting it was a simple study of a flower against a white wall. I was proud of of the pail colors and defined space and felt It had potential for some reworking later on. Eventually I finished it by painting a vibrant target pattern in the space between the rose and the wall. When I was painting the pattern I was thinking about sound and if it would be possible to articulate a buzzing or droning sound in color.
