My Inspiration

For years I have visited St. George in March and enjoyed photographing the first roses to bloom. This year was no exception because I believe I photographed over 400 roses. For me the roses are symbolic. My mother grew roses in her garden and the yellow roses were her favorites. My main focus was the interaction of light on each individual leaf and petal. After the etchings are printed through the etching press, I hand colored each print with watercolor. ~brent
