"Heaven on Earth Rose"
 
This is a miniature painting I recently completed (although only 1/3 scale instead of 1/6th scale) of a floribunda species of rose called "Heaven on Earth", painted on Kelmscott vellum, a type of vellum I particularly enjoy using for egg temperas in miniature. (It is shown here at it's actual size.) Mona

Wow, that's exquisite. I love the contrast between the velvety crush of petals and the waxy leaves; you can almost smell the rose.

Very nice, Mona. As a egg tempera painter, I know how much work went into that tiny painting. What are the actual dimensions?
Thanks for sharing it with us.

Alessandra and Phil, thanks. The actual dimensions of the live art are 2 3/8" x 2 7/8".

"Heaven on Earth Rose"
 
Forgot to add some context: this was painted from a photo I took of a rose bush that I planted in my garden in memory of my Dad. It was the second rose that grew on the bush, which didn't survive the following winter, so I am glad to have captured this image in paint.
