A Rose For Mother's Day

I found an artist online that I'm fascinated by and tried (unsuccessfully) to copy his style for this tile. The original is on his blog here. His is so much more vibrant but it was good practice. It was hard to duplicate the deliberate but quick strokes that seem to be his hallmark, especially with acrylic. It was worth the effort to celebrate a day dedicated to the difficult work my wife puts in every day. Without her, our house would come to grinding halt.
