Two good friends of mine recently got married, joining their lives together as a beautiful pair. For their wedding present, I made them this drawing. The beauty of the rose is alluring, so much that the thorns seem soft and maneuverable. Similarly is the love surrounding marriage, there will be difficult “thorny” spots whilst living with someone but the beauty of the rose outshines it all. A small prick is nothing compared to the strength love offers.
