Happy Valentine's Day - Acrylic Rose

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you still out there.  I had some leftover acrylic paint on my palette and decided to try a rose before it all dried up.

Many of you know that acrylics are not my favorite medium and I sometimes find it's quirks a little frustrating.  This time I decided to use a palette knife and not a brush.  I think it would have worked if the canvas had been larger - this is a small 4 x 4" square and my palette knife is relatively large in comparison.  I still think it came out pretty well for a medium that is sometimes difficult for me!

So, for all of you ladies, a red rose for Valentine's Day.....
