June's Birth Flower : the Rose

"Dancing Rose" by Eleatta 2012 (c)  acrylic on 12x12 gallery wrapped canvas $125

The rose is this month's Birth Flower featured in my painting series, Celebrations , Honoring the flowers of each month throughout the year has been a delightful focus from which to work,

Beyond its obvious beauty, according to the language of flowers developed during the Victorian era, a message was specifically assigned to the rose. A suitor could convey a hidden romantic meaning according to color:

Red - I Love You

Orange - You are my secret love

White - You are Heavenly

Yellow - I am not worthy of your love

White & Red - We are inseparable

Pink - Please Believe Me

In a day when few things are subtle, these messages have been charming subjects to celebrate with paint. Displayed in my Golden Belt studio, and in The Retreat spa, these floral messages are great conversation starters for the passerby!

Here are two other rose renditions - a couple of "wild" roses :

"Blue Rose" by Eleatta 2012 (c) $175 18x24

Flowers have symbolic value and are capable of conveying any emotion. But they should be chosen rightly and presented on time. For this you need a timely flower delivery.
