This is just a quick brush/ink piece I did this evening. I like the concept of a bleeding rose symbolizing pain–I'm not sure why, it just seems to fit. I'm not sure how pleased I am with the finished product; the rose is a little lopsided, and the brushstrokes aren't incredibly smooth, but I mainly drew it to vent/relax. Someday I'd like to try it again with (hopefully) better results. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, and maybe grasp the emotional connection that I was trying to convey.
