This piece is filled with symbolism. The red in the red-violet represents love. The green in the green-blue represents life. The blue in the green-blue represents peace. The rose represents both love and life, while the peace sign speaks for itself. I'm at a place in life where I'm filled with peace, contentment, love, and a love of life itself. It only felt natural to get all those emotions out on paper.
