Romancing the Rose is one Victor’s largest paintings. He worked on this piece on and off for a year. The exquisite flower is only where the story begins… Our Rose has a face. Can you find it?

The Rose is a beautiful woman who is flourishing from attention. The laboring men at the top right are working tirelessly to capture her heart. They will do anything for her consideration. Some have managed to get closer to her beauty, only to be denied by her guarded objections. The man with a ladder at the bottom is about to start his journey, unaware of the rejection of those who came before him.

The irony is that the Rose is longing for a romantic hero who can unlock her heart. The gentleman with a fresh bouquet on the left is different from everyone else. We can only speculate his words to her.

However, one thing is for sure, the Rose is starting to awake. Will this be the moment when she lets go of her fears and finally accepts love? Or, will she choose to turn away and remain forever as only a subject of man’s adoration? You decide…
