My Anniversary Rose

Kevin and I married when we were 20 years old.  We had our son a year and a half later.  Yes, we started life fast.  It was ok because we were very happy!  He couldn’t afford a dozen roses on our anniversary, so what he would do is give me 3 red roses meaning, “I Love You”.  He did this for years.

We wanted our children to be active as well as educated, so yes, they came first. As time went on, he started buying me more roses for our anniversary, but to tell you the truth, I’ve always loved the 3 red roses.

This red rose is part of my flower flood series and yep, it’s part of an anniversary rose too.  Kevin picks out gorgeous flowers, so when I get 3 red roses, they are exquisite.  This is my first photograph of an anniversary rose.  I have many now in my portfolio, but this one is my favorite.  It’s special and it’s for sale on Thirty9.  You can purchase here 🙂

On the Thirty9 website page where I sell my images for you to enjoy, it says, “Imagine swimming towards a blood-red sky, allowing the languid water to envelop you in its’ scarlet reflection.”

I would like to add to this, “Imagine swimming towards a beautiful red rose… where you can smell, feel and enjoy the anniversary of life and love!”

It is a beautiful print and I know you’ll love it hanging on a special location of your choice.  I personally feel you would love this on glossy acrylic.  You’ll be able to really feel the work hanging on your wall with the water and details of the petals.

If you purchase this piece, please let me know and I’ll send you a special gift with my story of this Anniversary Rose.
