12 | a rose without thorns


acrylic on stretched canvas,
coated with satin finish

this may seem unrealistic as thorns are there to protect the rose. however, what if we (the roses) could be vulnerable and unguarded without thinking about the "what if's", without thinking that we need to protect ourselves from the unexpected. wouldn't that be a beautiful thing? to not worry, to not stress, about things that may never happen? how amazing it would be to just BE.
