Came across this photo in the Visi magazine & my reaction was "oh wow" how crazy is this! I did 2 paintings a while back with my favourite arum lily & thought I would paint them with a thorn bush/branch! Something new & different for me as I have only, well 90% of the time, just painted the lilies. I titled the paintings "Thornbirds". The arrangement of the close-up of the rose, thorn branch & reversing the same image is not a bad idea!
