Black Rose – acrylic painting with haiku title, 102 x 102 mm, 2015

The faint impression
of a black rose at midnight:
real or imagined?

Underneath several layers of black paint (and quite a few layers of varnish) is a painting of a gold rose I didn’t like. Now that it’s almost completely black, I’ve decided I quite like the texture and the way the light catches the flecks of gold… I’m just not sure if it’s still a rose.
