This 5x7 acrylic painting of a pink rose and a rose bud is titled Alegria. Alegria means joy in Spanish. It is a gift for my grandfather, who has always influenced me to strive in part to be a better artist, but also to be a better person.
I have done some sketches, but have largely faltered in the goal I set for myself. My grandfather is ill right now and I haven't felt much like drawing or painting. I do intend to get back on track, but I'm not sure when, so mainly for today, I wanted to share this small painting and my intentions to do better at some point.
